Q:Can this be used on a inflatable boat's inflatable floor seam ???Asked on 6/17/2013 by kevin from new bern n.c.
A:Kevin, Seam Grip isn't strong enough for air-holding seams. Use an adhesive designed for that and for the material of the floor. Give us a call, 800.635.5202, if we can help you choose the right glue.Answered on 6/17/2013 by Clyde from NRS

Q:how is this applied?Asked on 2/24/2013 by chris
A:I apply Seam Grip using the nozzle of the tube to smear it along the seam
kind of like using a caulking gun. If I need to apply to an area I use a
small disposable paintbrush or scrape on a layer with a piece of scrap
paperboard to get a smooth finish. Seam Grip is incredibly sticky, needs
solvents to clean up, and has a pretty short working time so I get my tools
assembled beforehand and wear latex gloves. If you haven't used it before
it's worth practicing with a little first. This tube is huge so don't worry
about running out.Answered on 2/24/2013 by Anonymous
A:Seam Grip is thin enough to be applied using a brush, or you can apply it right out of the tube opening. It's a great consistency for latex gasket repairs and Cotol speeds up cure time. Check out the video on the product page for more ideas.Answered on 2/25/2013 by Clyde from NRS
A:Messy stuff to use but worth it. I would suggest gloves you can throw away. Open the top and place tube top next to seam and press BOTTOM as you follow the seam.. Takes a few tries to get it right but if you put just enough pressure and good movement along the seam it works well. Don't keep working the product over the seam it creates a big mess. If I missed a seam area I would wet my finger and gently move the product . Tube does not last long so if you start a project be sure to finish and if you have to quit clean the top real good to put the cap back on but use the rest of tube within a few days.Answered on 2/26/2013 by Anonymous
A:It depends what you need to do. I've replaced gaskets and boots on my dry suit. First clean the area & rough it a little . Then clean with denatured alcohol or ethyl alcohol. Then apply the grip with a spatula -like object or plastic spoon. Let it set overnight at room temperature - et voila, you should be ready to rock & roll.Answered on 2/25/2013 by Anonymous
