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!

All sales of flammable items are final.

      A:

      I used this on a rubber neck seal for a dry suit and it adhered great. Contact with salt water and sunlight does not affect the product. I have never been in a pool with it. I am not sure about the characteristics of vinyl and how it will adhere either.

      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.

      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:

      Most of these bladders are probably made of a type of plastic that Aquaseal will adhere to. So I'd say probably yes.

      I can't speak for the possibility of chemical leeching into your water, but
      it should adhere just fine.

      Yes, but I would allow extra time for curing. (several days)

    • VERIFIED BUYER

      A:

      I don't see any issues with cured Aquaseal being on or near your skin
      nor from breathing air that has been in contact with it. It has a very,
      very low VOC (solvent/fumes) content even uncured, so after a day or two
      of curing, it will be fume-free.
      ps I just used some on the latex seals on a dry suit, and it's amazing
      stuff.

    • VERIFIED BUYER

      A:

      Not sure if this is toxic after it drys but I don't believe it is suitable
      to glue 2 thin ends together. This is used more when you have a patch or
      larger area contacting a second large area. I would also be concerned about
      gluing a face mask together since it will be subject to increasing pressure
      as you descend. It makes more sense to buy a new mask.

      I would let it cure fully. After curing there should be no volatile substances remaining to breathe in.

      I'm not sure I understand your question. If you're concerned about fumes after it has cured, that shouldn't be a problem. Any solvent in the adhesive will be released in the curing process. Please give us a call, 800.635.5202 or email service@nrs.com if I've missed the mark.

    can I use on bladder from water towable tube to bind a seam?

      A:

      Quite possible. I have used this product twice. Once as designed to seal the latex wrist on a drysuit, and a second time repairing a pin hole on an aerobed. In the second case, I used plastic electrical tape to cover the aquaseal at the pin hole site. The following day, the tape had adhered to the aquaseal and the bed was fully inflated and the patch held.

      Aquaseal is flammable. The TSA info page on Prohibited Items - http://www.tsa.gov/traveler-information/prohibited-items#9 - doesn't specifically mention adhesives. We cannot air ship Aquaseal unless it's packaged in a special, and expensive, hazardous materials container. Check with the airline for more information.

      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 put fin plates on my inflatable kayaks and read where a company uses this for finishing around a patch, so I thought it would be nice around the edge of the plate, especially since it had to go over some seams. 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

                Comments about Aquaseal Urethane Repair Adhesive:

                My drysuit's latex socks had a bunch of pin holes in them allowing water to seep in. Aquaseal sticks to the rubber so well that I don't think it will ever come off, and it's every bit as flexible/stretchable as the rubber, so it won't pull loose from the socks when I stretch them over my socks.
                I stuffed the socks with towels to stretch them slightly, so the holes would open up, before applying the Aquaseal with a small stiff bristle brush.
                It went on with the consistency of honey, but it didn't drip or run, and "self leveled" out so it didn't leave high spots or bumps that would chafe.
                In spite of the safety warnings on the label, the solvent level is actually very, very low when compared to similar products such as contact cement, Goop or Shoe Goo.
