Repairing Aquatherm

Postby NorthSIKer » Sun Jul 23, 2017 7:05 pm

I have a small hole in my Reed aquatherm sprayskirt. It is not critical, but it would be nice to seal it up if not too difficult.

Has anyone had any experience with repairs to this fabric? Something like a dab of silicone would do it if it will stick.

Aquaseal works on most things, perhaps give Aquaseal a try. Usually found in dive shops.

We have specific heat adhesive backed tape that you can iron over Aquatherm to fix holes in two minutes. Send me an email & I'll stick a metre in the post for you.

Thanks again Mark. Repair tape arrived today and following the instructions on the YouTube video by Reed Aquatherm, even gumby I have been quickly able to achieve a neat repair.

It is another plus of this stuff that it is so easy to patch up.

Also, i have about n-5cm left of the tape if you would like it returned.
