Product Overview

P-tex repair material by itself does not bond well to steel, aluminum, wood, or fiberglass...so if you get a deep gouges that expose core material, or are along steel edges, P-Tex likely won't stay in place. Metalgrip string is a mix of polyethylene and heat-sensitive adhesive which is melted using our P-Tex Base Repair Iron into core-shot gouges or along steel edges. Metalgrip is softer than pure P-Tex repair material, for best results apply a thin layer of Metal grip, allow it to cool, then apply a layer of P-Tex String or P-Tex Repair Ribbon over the top. This will increase the durability and longevity of your repair.

  • Metalgrip string is 5mm thick.
  • Available in black or clear.
  • Sold as a 5-foot (1.5m) length.

    Surprisingly Grippy

    Posted by Justin Y on Feb 12, 2020

    I took a core shot to my brand new board, probably 2-3 inches long of exposure directly to the wood. I had my local fix it, but with such a long area in a high flex/stress area, their base weld job cracked out. I used this with a soldering iron in application before the Tognar P-Tex repair string, and it has yet to crack out after 5-6 hard uses. I tried using various types of Goo, epoxy, and other flexable sealants to fill the hole before applying the P-tex, and the metal grip has held in the best. I do not expect it to last forever, as the spot is in the middle of the board, but it is exactly as I imagined and has lasted longer than expected.

    metalgrip ski base repair string

    Posted by John Fleming on Jan 22, 2020

    This product worked well: I fixed my ski and the patch hasn't come out after 6 days skiing so far. I'd have given it 5 stars, but I had trouble getting it to lie in a thin layer as opposed to a glob.

    Made my core shot disappear

    Had a 6 " core shot and the metal string filled it so nicely that I can't even tell where the damage was located.

    I prefer this special P-Tex instead of epoxy glue under the regular P-Tex.

    Great Product

    Posted by Mark on Aug 13, 2015

    Ordered from NZ ...no problem with prompt supply of metal grip product. This is a great way to fix a ski base that has been damaged right through to the running boards. Metal grip sticks to the base and ptex will adhere to the metal grip. Ski shops in this country wont sell this product to the public..they are just trying to protect their workshop repair work I guess as metal grip is very simple to use effectively. Excellent to be able to access product on the net.

    Just Works

    Tried Epoxy and polychloroprene adhesives on an edge gauge that exposed some metal. However this kept coming off. The Metalgrip went on easy and has stayed there with no sign of delamination yet. Great product. Note that I did put P-Tex over the top of it in both cases.

    Great stuff

    This is the only solution for core shots short of sheet p-tex. Like Rusty G. sez below, it's all in the prep. I also use acetone for final cleaning and to help activate the surface of any polymers at the bottom of the hole prior to application. Finish with your p-tex layer and bob's yer uncle. Bites like a pit bull.
