This product is very easy to use and produces an excellent result. It arrived quickly in the post and was well packaged. The chip fixer comprises of a two compounds that need to be mixed together to create a cement that fills the chip. The most difficult part is working out a ratio of 30:1 as I only needed a small amount to fill a small chip. They very kindly provide you with a mixing pallet knife and I just guessed the ratio and it worked. It only takes 30 minutes to harden before you use the aerosol paint spray to spray the enamel layer on. I found it hard to create a totally smooth surface but it has since worn smooth and the chip is almost impossible to find. I would recommend this product because a bath chip can quickly get worse and it is cheaper than having to replace the bath. It is pricy, but cheaper than a new bath or shower tray in the end.
Husband chipped shower tray accidentally - air was blue! Having had a great service from Plumbworld with an order of shower sealant remover, new sealant and tools for applying same.. I immediately got on line and found this Cramer scratch and repair kit. After a bit of moaning, having wanted to fill the chip with sealant and about having a wife who demands the right tools for the job, he got on with the job and was hugely impressed at both ease of use and result... slightly whiter than the tray colour, but it looks like new and apart from the colour difference you can neither see the join or feel and difference of surface and join. Brilliant product - Highly recommend it.
Recently bought a house with a lovely double belfast kitchen sink... with a huge, ugly chip in the middle partition that had been badly glued back into place. Thanks to this handy kit it now looks good as new - I'm delighted. As others have noted, it's tricky to guess the ratio of the hardener but I suspect accuracy isn't critical. I'd also recommend having some extra fine-grain sandpaper to hand unless your chip is absolutely tiny, as you don't get much in the kit. Be careful to spray from the recommended distance and not to mask directly on the surface for an even finish that hides any imperfection in the colour match.
I used the product to repair a small gouge/scratch on a fiberglass bath. The damaced area is now as good as new with no sign of a repair. I was advised by the manufacturer to put masking tape around the damaged area before using the filler to prevent over spread and oversanding on the small repair and this worked well. This advise is not included in the instructions. One problem is that the filler and hardener have to be mixed in a ratio of 30:1. This is very difficult to judge particularly when mixing a small amount. Some form of measure would be useful.
Like many of us at the moment every penny counts. This is why I always go to my money grabbing and rip off plumbing merchant to source my product. Once this task has been completed, I simply retrun back home and log on to Plumbworld and order. On this occassion Rip off Plumbers Merchant price was Â£35 and Plumbworld price was Â£20 plus a couple of quid postage. This equates to a massive saving in my eyes for a few clicks of the mouse. Well done James Hickman for sourcing your product so cheaply and managing to sell it to the public for an acceptable price.
Easy and straightforward to use, but probably takes practice to get a smooth and invisible mend. Best to put lots of plastic sheeting around the repair area when using the paint, because you need to hold the can 6-8 inches away, which means the spray area is quite big so paint specks get everywhere. Failing that, if it's a tiny chip or scratch, probably worth spraying the paint into a container and then brushing it on. Wish I'd thought of that before I made my repair. Don't know why the manufacturers don't suggest it.
It took ages to decide to buy this product, after a mystery chip appeared in the new bath - it wasn't me guv! I only needed a tiny amount, so had to guess the proportions but it worked OK. I also found that I over sanded which left a depression so had to top up the filler, but that was fine. The amazing thing was Ithat after two passes of spray, I could no longer make out where the chip had been! You can just detect a slight roughness but not see the repair at all..
I followed the instructions carefully and used ethyl alcohol to degrease a chip on a ceramic sink. I left the compound in place for 12 hours and then very slowly sandpapered the surface ...do not rush this bit or you can have pullout. I really took my time and then used the finest paper (supplied in the kit) which polishes the surface. The chip is virtually invisible. Needless to say I was pleased. Its a good product .but you really have to take your time.
I was really worried about having to replace my bathtub after a full shampoo bottle fell in it and took a big chip of enamel out. But after sourcing on line and finding this reasonably price bath repair kit, I just followed the very clear instructions on the back. So easy and quick! And presto, my tub is like new! wonderful! highly recommended and I have some left over should it happen again.
A brand new wash basin was chipped in several places due to a poor design causing items stood on the side to slip into the basin; our B&B guests have been a little careless! This product has allowed us to repair and renovate the sink to look as good as new - smooth, white clean and shiny. We have yet to see how long it lasts, but for the time-being, we are very pleased.
