About this project
Braeön is a high strength, lightweight plastic ribbon that molecularly fuses to itself in a matter of seconds. Simply heat, press and repeat to form the plastic into any desired shape. Once cooled, the self-bonding plastic hardens, creating a bond as strong as steel.
A lighter and more versatile alternative to rope, Braeön's patent pending design is a staple for all outdoor enthusiasts and has a place in every kitchen drawer, tool box and backpack. Create custom grips, handles, and harnesses in seconds. Tow equipment, gear and toys with ease. Brave every adventure with Braeön.
Designed to be:
- Strong as Steel but Light Like a Feather
- Malleable and Reformable at Low Temperatures
- Adaptable to Most Scenarios
- Moisture Resistant and Paintable
- Excellent in Extreme Cold Weather
Benefits of Backing Our Campaign:
- Get exclusive Kickstarter Pricing – Available ONLY until March 9th!

- Learn about new innovative product developments – Created by the same engineers that developed Braeön!
Heat exposed ribbon with hot air or liquid, 140°F or hotter, to bend and mold Braeön into desired shape.
Once heated and shaped, adhere Braeön to itself to form a bond.
Let your creation set for a few minutes. Once cooled, the lightweight material molecularly fuses to itself in a matter of seconds for a bond as strong as steel. If adjustments or additions are desired, simply reheat Braeön.
Create a Custom Knife Grip
Braeön can be wrapped on any handle and molded to fit your custom hand grip, making using a knife with a slick grip safer and more comfortable.
Strengthen a Hockey Stick Blade
Go from ice to street hockey without the fear of breaking the blade. Simply wrap Braeön around the hockey stick blade to reinforce the outer surface. Get creative and strengthen other surfaces that face the same wear-and-tear as a hockey stick.
Broken Tow Strap? No Problem!
Tow strap on your boat break while loading your boat? Braeön can tow 2,000lbs in a single strand, making it a great replacement for your winch strap. Use Braeön to safely and securely crank up your boat.
Create a Splint with Braeön
Mold and shape Braeön to make a custom finger splint. In a few minutes, have your broken bones securely set in place. Use a few layers of Braeön to create a strong barrier and protect you from knocking on other surfaces.
As Seen On
All proceeds from our successful Braeön Kickstarter campaign will be used to construct and commission a dedicated production line that produces high quality Braeön. This process will take around 3 months to complete. After the Kickstarter campaign conclusion, Braeön will expedite this process and anticipates fulfillment of pledges shortly thereafter.
Watch Braeön's Strength
Braeön’s no-fuss application requires nothing more than heat. Just dip in hot water and mold it with your hands. You can also use a blow dryer, oven, heat gun or other tools you might have.
Braeön is a thermoplastic that becomes moldable at 140°F and solidifies within just seconds. It can be formed into custom shapes and molecularly fuses to itself when it cools after being exposed to heat.
Make a mistake? Want to make a tweak? No problem! Braeön can be reshaped and molded again and again simply by reheating it.
Each roll of Braeön comes in a custom tin, that can be used time and time again.
Braeön is the crowning achievement, a veteran and materials engineer who spent his life wearing many different hats.
He was raised on a farm, competed an athlete, served in the military, owned multiple homes and has a lifelong passion for the outdoors. The variety of lifestyles shared many opportunities to which the knowledge of materials engineering could be applied.
The collective experience yielded Braeön.
Braeön is the combination of a super high strength synthetic fiber with a specialty plastic that becomes moldable and remoldable at low temperatures. By combining these two materials in a highly specialized process, Braeön achieves the best of both worlds, the world’s strongest and most adaptable material.

Risks and challenges
Braeön is prepared to begin construction of a dedicated production line at the successful conclusion of this campaign. As with all capital construction products, time and/or cost overruns can impact the final delivery of the product. As we strive to provide you with the ultimate product, and would not feel comfortable releasing any product until it is perfect, there is always the possibility of delays.
We promise to do our best to keep you as up to date as possible on any and all Braeön related developments, and are working to amend as many product issues as possible before Braeön’s official release.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
