- repair instructions
- Turn it inside out. That is, repair on the inside. It can be repaired from the outside but also, keeps better and looks better if you repair on the inside. It depends on where and what to repair.
- At the site of damage. Be careful to remove excess nylon fabric from neoprene so the neoprene meets the glue and not the nylon. Important in case you are trying to repair a tear in the neoprene.
- Spread an even layer of glue over the damaged area and on the supplied neoprene piece (cut possibly to the neoprene so it fits. To the area.) Allow the adhesive to partially dry for 5 to 10 minutes on both parts.
- After the adhesive has partially dried, put neoprene piece over the damaged area and put pressure on the piece (preferably with a moderately heavy object.) Until the neoprene piece is flat against the part to be repaired. It takes at least a few minutes. If it is a heavy object, it should not stand there for several hours then the neoprene can be flatted out and may get less heat capacity.
- Take the supplied tape and put it over the exposed edges of neoprene repair and press with a hot iron (70 degrees Celsius). The tape can also be used to seal leaking semidry stitches just by putting it on the leaking seam area in the same manner.
