MDT Distributes Rubbn’ Repair System

06 August 2007

MDT is to be the sole UK distributor and supplier of Rubbn’ Repair, a rapid composite repair system.

Kevin Dyer of MDT said this week that negotiations between his company and Rubbn’ Repair’s European distributor Jerome Galpin of Team EFJIE had now been finalised.

Rubbn’ Repair is an advanced repair system with the flexibility of duct tape and the strength of a rigid high-performance composite, and the self adhesive patches offer a speedy solution to track side repairs. Kevin, who has managed the composite repairs at the A1 GP races for the last two seasons, said: “Rubbn Repair is an excellent product, and a new kind of repair technology that will enable us to carry out non-structural body repairs with a half hour turnaround. The product is non toxic, and requires no additional equipment as it is so easy to use. From a logistical point of view it is non hazardous and does not require special packing or shipping so freight is not a problem.”

Rubbn’ Repair works by heating self adhesive composite patches to a temperature above 90 degrees Celsius. The backing is then peeled off and the warmed patch is moulded to the area that requires repair. Once the patch cools the material returns to a rigid state with an element of structural stability.
