Aquaseal is applied to a hole or tear and allowed to cure over a period of hours (usually 8-12).
When applied, Aquaseal cures by reacting with humidity in the air. It doesn’t ‘dry’ the way other glues do. It changes from a thick liquid to a thick, flexible, elastic rubber. Once cured, it’s permanent. The repair will generally last the life of the item.
The industry standard for maximum strength repairs to wet suits, dry suits and all watersports products. Flexible urethane formula waterproofs, seals and protects against abrasion. Hundreds of watersports and household uses. For fast cure, use with Cotol-240.
DIRECTIONS FOR Neoprene REPAIR:
Clean damaged area with Cotol-240
Cure Accelerator/Precleaner or solvent (paint thinner, nail polish remover or similar).
Trim loose threads
Non-fabric surfaces should be roughened with sandpaper, then cleaned. Apply Aquaseal® to surfaces directly from tube or with knife or flat stick. Keep repair level overnight. Avoid contact with other surfaces. Most repairs reach full strength overnight (10-14 hours). Allow longer for thickest repairs. For fastest cure (2 hours or less), mix in Cotol-240.
Holes AND Tears
Create backing with removable tape. Fill void and 1/4" beyond edge with Aquaseal. Remove tape after full cure.
Apply 1/16" thick bead overlapping seams edges by at least 1/4". Apply with slight pressure to saturate fabric surfaces.
High Wear Areas
Apply thin coat with knife for flexible abrasion resistance.
Fully cured aquaseal is slippery when wet. For added traction on footwear, sprinkle sand on uncured Aquaseal 1/2 hour after applying.
To remove Aquaseal from hands, buff with cloth soaked in paint thinner, nail polish remover or 99% isopropyl alcohol.
Advance contents to tube neck. Wipe clean and cap. Keep in cool, dry place; for extended life, place in freezer. To thaw or for easier-flowing contents, soak tube in warm water for 15 minutes.
