Rec Repair for Your Kayak

Don’t let damaged equipment put an end to your expedition. Rec’Repair® is a tough, formable patch for easily repairing holes and damage to kayaks, canoes, car top carriers, hiking poles, coolers, and more. It’s as simple as heat, peel, and apply.


Unlike tape, the patch becomes rigid after it’s shaped and then cooled, creating a durable, water-resistant, structural repair that won’t crumble or peel off.


Originally developed for NASA and made with “shape memory” material, this temporary, all-weather, space-age patch can be warmed, molded, and adhered over the repair site, and allowed to cool, forming rigid structural support. Rec’Repair holds tightly to the damaged area with a high-performance adhesive.

The patch can be purchased in emergency repair kits containing all the tools you’d need for a serious repair in the middle of nowhere: a repair patch, a water-activated heating bag, gloves to handle the warm patch, alcohol wipes (for cleaning surfaces), and instructions.

Rec’Repair is offered in two lightweight kit sizes as well as a variety of stock sizes, and it comes in black or white. Volume discounts and custom-sized repair sheets are also available.

The small, lightweight kit can easily be stowed in a backpack, kayak, canoe, trailer, or RV.

Once it becomes rigid, Rec'Repair will hold even when exposed to rain, snow, or hot or cold environments.

Rec’Repair is offered in two kit sizes. Both are small, disposable, lightweight and contain a patch, gloves, MRE heater bag, foil bag packaging, alcohol wipes, and instructions.

Rec’Repair gives you structural support as well as incredible adhesion. It allows different materials and surfaces to be fixed or repaired together.

The entire patch process can repair the hole or structure within minutes. Rec'Repair hardens in seconds. No curing is required.

Rec'Repair is water, weather, abrasion and vibration resistant.

It allows you to seal and repair damages in unusual angles or locations. Rec'Repair is formable and can be placed tightly over uneven or curved surfaces.

Rec'Repair will not gum up sandpaper or dull cutting tools, and it can be sanded to bevel or smooth the edges. When rigid, the patch material is machinable. It can also be painted with any paint suitable for plastic or resin surfaces.

Rec'Repair is completely non-toxic. It does not release fumes or chemical irritants.
