Spraydeck repairs

Post by Mr Ed »

Hello,

Does anyone have any advice on repairing spraydecks/neoprene?

Where do people source their neoprene and what glue do people use?

Many thanks!

Ed

I've successfully used a Lomo neoprene repair tape - it's a little scary using a warm iron on kit but it works. Also, used Black Witch glue and cutoffs from an old wetsuit - there's a really good youtube vid on how to use it.

Totally depends what sort of repair you are trying to do and where, cuts / tears / holes / general reinforcement ?

Black Witch and also liquid latex works quite well for covering pinholes

Black Witch to glue edges together and if necessary Aquaseal/Aquasure (same product) over the repair to protect and strengthen it.
