Aquaseal Urethane Repair Adhesive is ideal for repairing holes and tears in dry bags, wetsuits, paddling apparel and latex gaskets. Waterproofs, seals and protects against abrasion.
  • Aquaseal is the industry standard for maximum strength repairs to wetsuits, dry suits and all water sports products.
  • It bonds to hypalon, neoprene, latex, nylon, vinyl (PVC), GORE-TEX and other trilaminates, many fabrics, foams, composites, and many plastics.
  • It dries clear and flexible and is also self-leveling.
  • Works great for replacing latex gaskets and for adding an abrasion-resistant layer on boats and other boating gear.
  • Mix Cotol™ Accelerator and Cleaner with Aquaseal to shorten cure time. It's also a great cleaner for prepping surfaces for repair.
  • Good tip: Aquaseal is a moisture-cure adhesive. To prevent the unused portion from hardening in the tube, follow these simple steps: Squeeze Aquaseal right up to the opening so there's no air pocket. Then put some vaseline on the threads before screwing on the cap. Now put the tube in a zip-seal bag and store it in the freezer. When you're ready to use the tube again, warm it at room temperature or in the bag in warm water and you're good to go!

Sticky as hell. Best product I know of for fixing kite bladders. Use Cotol Accelerator to reduce the curing time from 24 hours to 45-minutes. No kidding. Apply to both sides of the bladder material or valve, wait 20-minutes or so for it to tack up, then mate the parts. No need for a weight if you do it this way. The parts will stick by themselves.

    Comments about Aquaseal Urethane Repair Adhesive:

    I used this to seal the stitching lines on a tent floor, rain fly and on the PVC liner on a pop-up truck camper. It did make the tent heavier, but also dryer. I used a disposable brush and cut the bristles to 1/4 inch long. I squeezed the Aquaseal onto a piece of board, then brushed it onto the material. The tube opening will cure when you stop using it, so I just drilled a new hole for a second and third use. Buy the small tubes unless you are doing a very large project.

I taped the inside and outside edges to make nice straight lines and spread it on. It looks great and no edges to snag on anything. thanks

        Q:

        I have a dry bag with a clear window of unknown material that has a hole. What do you think, would this product work?
        Asked on 10/12/2016 by Mike from Oregon

        4 answers

        • VERIFIED BUYER

          A:

          Almost certainly will work.
          A clear drybag window is likely PVC (if it's slick shiny, slightly stiff), possibly urethane (if it's very flexible, a little less slippery and shiny, or if it's yellowing) and I have had excellent results many times on either material.
          Clean the surface, work it into the hole if you can, to grab the hole's edges; and leave a little layer of it overlapping on the surface, at least 1-2 mm all around, proportional to the size of the hole.
          I usually mix in a drop of Cotol Accelerator, which greatly reduces the curing time.

          Mike, Aquaseal bonds to hypalon, neoprene, latex, nylon, vinyl (PVC), GORE-TEX and other trilaminates, many fabrics, foams, composites, and many plastics. Your window is probably PVC or polyurethane and Aquaseal will stick to them. Lightly roughen the surrounding area to increase the bond. And note the tip in the product text on how to preserve the unused portion in the tube. Aquaseal's great stuff to have in your repair inventory.

        • VERIFIED BUYER

          A:

          Yes, in my opinion. In dry suit repair this product binds latex to latex, and latex to a waterproof laminated shell material.. it drys flexible and watertight.
          If it is a tear, I would apply to one side first with a piece of wax paper on the other side of the hole. Then 24 hours later, flip over and do the other side of the hole.
          If it is a hole larger than 1/8 inches, I would find a clear plastic patch like the ones used in pool repair and apply to that.
          A pool repair patch kit is a good alternative

          A:

          It seems good as new for at least a 2-3 years unopened, but will start to solidify in the neck of the tube within a couple of months once the seal has been punctured. You can still drill or cut through that plug and use the remainder for more months; or if the neck is plugged too badly, you can cut into the side of the tube to use the good stuff still inside.

          Fernando, Aquaseal is a moisture-cure adhesive. While sealed in an unopened tube it will stay usable indefinitely. After using it, press product up to the mouth of the tube and tightly seal the cap (I put vaseline on the tube threads). If you place the tube in a ziploc bag and store in the freezer you can thaw and use at will. Keep moisture away from the unused portion in the tube and you're golden.

          Hi,
          I'm not sure if there is an expiration date.
          My guess is that if the tube has never been open, it should be fine.
          When you open the tube, the product should flow like honey. If it is hardened, it is bad. Simple as that.
          Once it has been applied to a repair, it lasts a long time. I am using a drysuit with a repair from 4 years ago with no problem.

          This stuff is a solvent based glue packaged in an aluminum tube.  As long as it's not opened it will last a lonnggg time.  If you open it and keep it sealed after using it it will last a long time.  As long as you can squeeze it out of the tube it is OK.  Iv'e had tubes last years, as long as it flows it's good.

          Probably will be ok. This stuff is strong and waterproof, and fills gaps. It's great on urethane, neoprene, rubber, and fabric; and fair to good on most plastics, except only fair to poor sticking to polyethylene.
          Of course make sure the surface is very clean.
          But if your pool is PVC, you might do better with a good PVC glue and PVC patch material, which actually melt and fuse a little from the solvent.

          Aquaseal is a very robust product. The patched area needs to be dry and clean before applying.
          I believe this will work and stay in place for many years if the pool water is drained below the tear in the seam and you can patch it from the inside.
          I think you should use a pool patch product designed to be applied underwater on the water side of the liner if the tear is underwater.

          Answered on 6/8/2016 by Anonymous
        • VERIFIED BUYER

          A:

          I believe it would work though not sure how much pressure the repair will
          be subject to. You will need to use as instructed, with the
          cotol accelerant, or the patch will never dry. A small tube should
          suffice, whatever is left over will likely harden before you could use it
          again. I would put a patch on both sides of the tear for extra strength.
          Hope this helps...

          A:

          Jay, Aquaseal bonds well to vinyl (PVC). It's flexible and chemical resistant. There on the product page, under the More Information heading, there's a link to instructions for using it to make a patch. It's not a contact adhesive, but mixing it with Cotol speeds up the cure time. For a contact adhesive, we highly recommend Clifton Urethane Adhesive, Item # 38700.01; again a good glue for vinyl and there's also a link there for use instructions. If it's a seam you're repairing you'll definitely want to apply a patch over the tear area. Give us a call if you have questions, 800.635.5202.

          A:

          Probably. I haven't tried vinyl, but it works well on polyurethane. Since
          you want to roll it up at night, you'll want a quick cure time. Use Aquaseal
          with Cotol-240 to accelerate the cure time. It'll be ready to go in about 45
          minutes, otherwise overnight.
          1. Cut patch from similar material
          2. Lightly sand patch and area to be patched
          3. Clean both with alcohol
          4. Mix Aquaseal and Cotol (It will turn milky)
          5. Coat both the patch and the area to be patched liberally and set
          them aside.
          6. Wait about 15-minutes until the goo is gummy (time varies with
          temperature and humidity)
          7. When gummy enough so that both pieces will stick together without
          separating, stick them together
          8. Kneed out any air bubbles with your fingers, then wait 45-minutes or
          so until goo isn't sticky anymore (time varies)
          The same process works with Aquaseal without Cotol, but takes a lot longer.
