What you need to succeed: MagicEzy 9 Second Chip Fix, dish detergent, paper towel or tissue. Optional: hairdryer to expedite drying in cold weather or repairs on vertical surfaces (see repair tips below).
Step 1 - PREPARE:
Clean the damaged area with dish soap and water; rinse with clean water.
Allow the area to dry fully in the sun or use a hairdryer to expedite drying.
For even consistency, rotate the tube between your palms or shake the tube for 30 seconds.
Step 2 - APPLY and LEVEL:
For chips, apply a 1/4-inch (6mm) thick layer into the damaged area.
For deeper damage, see repair tips below.
With a tissue handy, turn the tube around, and, with a light touch, use the patented 'level' end of the tube to smooth the repair, holding the tube at 90 degrees to the repair.
Step 3 - TRIM:
Use the tissue to wipe off the 'level'; use the 'level' to trim smears around the repair, taking care not to touch the repair itself.
If necessary, use the 'level' to repeat trimming.
Step 4 - LET DRY:
Dry times vary, but normal dry time is two hours at 70 degrees F/20 degrees C.
Allow to harden overnight; achieve maximum durability and adhesion after 14 days.
Repair tip: hot weather application
Above 90 degrees F/30 degrees C, apply a damp towel over the area until the surface reaches hand temperature.
Repair tip: blending colors, if needed
After cleaning the damaged area, mix two or more MagicEzy 9 Second Chip Fix colors on a piece of clear plastic wrap; place near the surface to view the new color.
Repair tip: fixing damage on vertical surfaces
Apply the product according to directions; after the second leveling, use a hairdryer to blow hot air on the repair for two minutes to form a skin that won't slump.
Repair tip: fixing deep damage (1/2-inch/12mm)
Apply the product in 1/4-inch layers, letting each layer dry and shrink overnight before reapplying.
Repair tip: drying in cold weather
Below 60 degrees F/15 degrees C, to set, use a blow dryer for three minutes.
Repair tip: achieving a gloss finish
Apply the product according to directions; let dry. Add a thin topcoat of MagicEzy Hairline Fix (SOLD SEPARATELY).
Repair tip: fixing plastic or aluminum surfaces
These surfaces require that you first use MagicEzy Mega Fusion (SOLD SEPARATELY) to prime and seal the damaged area.
Can I see a color chart?
Yes you can print one from manufactures web site.
Did not work as good as I thought it would. Did not fill in scratch.
Is this product a liquid or a paste? I have an application on a vertical side of my boat...just don't want it to "run" after its applied
Thanks Colin for your advice!
Excellent advice - I will try it! Thanks John
Great response and advice - thanks William
David, thanks for the advice- I will check their website for more information.
Thank Orestes for your excellent feedback
I have used white chip fix on a vertical surface. Make sure you use it exactly as instructed on the package within the temperature range and kneading the package. Otherwise it has worked well for me for filling up to 3/16 in size drill hole on a vertical surface. Chip fix has a great company website with FAQs, videos etc that may be helpful.
It is a thicker liquid. I used it on vertical in limited fashion. Small amounts and repeated application to fill worked best.
I would call it a gel. I used the product on my transom and it stayed in place pretty well. Had to smooth it upwards a couple of times until it was firm enough, but not really a big deal. I love the product, I keep a couple of colors on hand and just dab it on whenever I notice a chip.
Thanks for your feedback!
This product has a very low viscosity so that it will run run into the chip or crack, I wouldn't use it on a vertical surface it's too runny!
It is a paste
More like a liquid that hardens. I used it for spider cracks on the deck of my boat. Not sure how it would work otherwise.
ORESTES DE LA NOVAL
Its a thick liquid/thin paste. I used it on the side of my hull and it wanted to run a little bit, so i put on in a thinner layer and it seemed to stop the running issue.
Does it harden? One feedback was that it didn't
Thanks Rick; I have a silver dollar size chip about 1/8" deep. Do you think it will work? phil.
The one thing the YouTube video does not mention is that the contents of the tube must be kneaded to mix the color and the paste. The instructions that come with it also do not tell you this. If you open it and it comes out runny like paint, screw the lid back on and knead the tube to mix it all together.
Hi,I have a jacuzzi tub (beige color). It is a fiberglass bathtub. It has a crack at the bottom. Something fell and cracked it. Can I use the chip fix or the hair fix?Thanks
Depends if the crack is hairline or bigger. Chip fix is a little thicker if there are any gouges in the surface. Otherwise, hairline fix should do it.
You could use this as long as it's just a surface crack and not all the way through.
I have not used the product yet so I cannot truly provide an answer. Probably better go to the manufacturer and ask them. Also probably depends on the specific sizes - take some pictures and share with the manufacturer.
I Have a white 1996 Seadoo Sportster. What color MagicEzy should I use for chip repair?
Sorry, we don't have any references to boat manufacturers colors.
Great epoxy alternative
Very, very easy to use and surprisingly durable. I fixed 2 x 1/2 inch chips on the exterior hull about 3 months ago and they are looking great and seem very strong. Tips: This product is not a fast curing product. took about 48 hours to harden. You will need at least 2 applications to allow for minor shrinkage.
It works as advertised. ezy
worked great to fill screw holes in deck from old hardware. I wish there were more colors available, specifically bright yellow to match the deck color.Be sure to use above 60 degrees fahrenheit and thoroughly mix by "massaging" the tube prior to each use as suggested in the instructions.
filled screw holes on boat. easy to use as long as you follow instructions using in appropriate setting and ambient temperature (more than 60 degrees)
"It's hard to say"
My front lid cover over the storage on the front of the boat got a chip on the edge of about 1/2 inch diameter. I applied magicezy and used a blow dryer to cure it. Then it sat in the sun for hours. It looks OK but the product never hardened up. Looks like a one time shot for me.
