For a long time, duct tape has held the mantle of best thing to have in a pinch. It’s strong, can be shaped into countless things – including tools, clothing, rafts, and even rope bridges – and it’s relatively inexpensive. Well, it’s time to move over, duct tape. There’s a new kid in town and its name is Braeon.

This super plastic – in the form of a pure polymer ribbon – is capable of some pretty amazing things. With just the simple application of heat, this material can be turned into chain links, shoelaces, a vehicle tow rope, a knife handle wrap – honestly, the applications are nearly endless. It’s also unbelievably strong. In fact, a single ribbon can withstand over 2,500 pounds of pull-strength. It has even been used to tow a 5,000 pound truck up a 30 degree incline. And the best part is, it’s malleable enough that it can then be reformed and repurposed. Light as a feather, strong as steel, water resistant, and functional in extreme cold – Braeon super plastic can do it all. Single rolls will retail for around $50 when it goes to retail, but you can get your hands on it now via the brand’s Kickstarter. [Purchase]
