Sticks, stubs, thorns and horns make holes and tears in your PVC and vinyl gear. Tear-Aid Patch - Type B is your answer; It's durable, flexible, airtight and watertight. Perfect for your repair kit.
  • The Tear-Aid Type B is for vinyl/PVC ONLY. The oils in these materials and coatings require the special adhesive in Type B.
  • Patching is oh so easy. Select the right size patch for the job. Clean the repair surface with an alcohol prep pad or rubbing alcohol. When the area is dry, just peel the backing off the Tear-Aid patch and stick it on. No mess, no muss, no fuss.
  • The unique adhesive on Type B resists the oils in vinyl that cause other adhesives to soften and turn gummy in sunlight.
  • Available in kit form and in rolls 3"W x 5'L.
  • Patches are airtight and watertight, even under pressure when stretched.
  • The patches are see-through, so the color of your gear shows right through.
  • It's UV resistant and conforms to irregular surfaces.
  • Don't throw away that gear - patch it with Tear-Aid.
  • Patch dry bags, rain gear, air mattresses, water toys, luggage, raft seats, etc. The list is endless.
  • Comes with complete, easy to follow directions - follow them carefully for the best results.
  • For materials other than vinyl/PVC, use Type A Tear-Aid, Item#1980.

  • Tear-Aid Patch - Type B

    Q:

    will this likely work on a hole at a seam on a vinyl "island"? We have a second small hole (pinky size). Will this kit be sufficient for both?

      A:

      Only if it is a flat seam. Depending on how much you use it should be enough.

      This kit contains:(1) 3" X 12" (1) 7/8" X 7/8" patch(1) 1 3/8" x 1 3/8" patch(1) 12" Reinforcement Filament (For repairing tears at edges)(2) Alcohol Prep Pads
      I have not used my kit yet. If the sizes of your areas needing repair are small enough to be covered with these patches, I think it should work.
      ps: I have used clear awning repair tape from a RV store with great success..

      Sandy, here are the contents: (1) 3" x 12" Patch, (1) 1 3/8" x 1 3/8" Patch, (1) 7/8" x 7/8" Patch, (2) Alcohol Prep Pads, 36" Reinforcement Filament (For Repairing Tears at Edges), and Illustrated Repair Instructions. If that doesn't sound like it's enough, opt for the roll of Tear-Aid; it's a great deal.

  • Tear-Aid Patch - Type B

    Q:

    How many patches come in the Kit?

    & We also ripped a hole into one of our party rafts, which is PVC, will it hold up, so we can use it again shortly?

      A:

      The kit has two alcohol wipes, one small patch about the size of a postage stamp and a large patch that is 3" x 12". I purchased the patch kit as a precaution and have not had an opportunity to use it on my Vanguard raft. I ensure I put in our "rafting bag", along with a pair of scissors, in case of emergency. Frankly, I would not trust these patches as a permanent fix. They appear to be enough to get you down the river and through the trip--nothing more.

      Renee--
      I got the 3" by 5' roll--so I can cut to size.  I recommend that, because there are times when a boat can get a long cut or rip.  My choice over patches
      PVC IS vinyl--as in polyvinyl chloride, although there are a couple other "vinyl" products: Ethylene Vinyl Acetate (EVA) andPolyethylene Vinyl Acetate (PEVA) a copolymer of polyethylene and EVA.  Just be sure to get the Type B Tear-Aid for vinyl.  Type A is for Hypalon.  And remember that the chemical bond strengthens over some hours.  I used type B to repair a vinyl liner in an AIRE boat and used it immediately with no problem.

      Hi boater -
      Here is what the kit contains:
      • Roll Size: 3"W x 5'L
      • Kit Contains:
      • (1) 3" x 12" Patch
      • (1) 1 3/8" x 1 3/8" Patch
      • (1) 7/8" x 7/8" Patch
      If your boat is PCV - and you can patch the tear with sufficient material to reach 1/2 - 1 inch beyond the tear, it should hold just fine. If your boat is not PCV - it will not work.

      I haven't had an opportunity to use my kit yet. However, I have used some clear tape from a RV store that works well on my camper awning. Just look for awning repair tape and follow the cleaning instructions. It can be used right away.

    Is this the product to use on the Saturn boats?

      I believe all Saturn boats are made with a PVC-coated material. Tear-Aid Type B is specifically for PVC/vinyl materials.

      Yes, the Saturn boats are PVC and require the PVC-specific Tear-Aid

      A:

      For small holes this product works surprisingly well and is really quick.  You only use the Type B if your boat is PVC not Hyplon or other. I think saturn inflatables are PVC, but I am not positive.  If it is Hyplon you need Type A, which I have not used.

                    We have an inflatable dingy which leaked water along floor. Outside of a very expensive repair at local shop we could not find any product that worked on the PVC material. The Tear-Aid Type B tape has sealed the leaks and appears to be holding up.

                        I actually used this on our garage mats - they are made out of material similar to rafts. It works great! Repaired all the small holes and tears without adding any bulk.
