Gear Aid Seam Grip® is amazing. It’s an award-winning repair adhesive that can keep you dry in any weather. It permanently seals the seams on your tent, pack and rainwear. It can repair rips, tears and holes in your gear, too. It’s your all-purpose liquid tool in a tube. Seam Grip is part of a comprehensive line of Care and Repair products from Gear Aid. Ideal for on uncoated and polyurethane coated fabrics. Long considered the industry standard in repairing surfaces or seal seams of natural and synthetic fabrics, waterproof laminates, leather and vinyl. Seam Grip may be used to repair all types of waders and footwear, neoprene, PVC, rubber, and more. Concentrated and waterproof, Seam Grip offers excellent adhesion, long lasting flexibility, superior traction and abrasion resistance, with minimal shrinkage.
PREP: Clean seams on used tents with isopropyl (rubbing) alcohol.
APPLY: Apply a thin film of Seam Grip to inside of the seam (one coat).
DRY: Let dry overnight (approximately 8-12 hours—may be longer in low humidity). For 2-hour dry time, mix small batches of Seam Grip with Cotol-240™. Apply with brush. Adhesive Applications: Roughen and clean surfaces with rubbing alcohol. Apply Seam Grip to both surfaces. Allow to dry (cure) 15 minutes, then join (clamp or tape) surfaces together overnight.
CLEAN UP: Seam Grip will dry (cure) and flake off hands. Washing hands in soap and water will accelerate curing. Uncured Seam Grip can be partially removed with a coarse cloth soaked in rubbing alcohol. For easiest clean up wear disposable rubber gloves.
STORAGE: Advance contents to tube neck and replace original cap securely. Store partially used tube in freezer.
SPECIAL APPLICATIONS & TIPS:
TENT SEAM SEALING: Perimeter seams on ‘seam taped’ tents are often not factory sealed and require sealing. Apply a thin film of Seam Grip to inside floor seams (fig.1). Allow to dry (cure) overnight. A slight surface tack is normal and will dissipate with tent use. Use Seam Grip to seal areas that regularly leak, such as stake-out points at corners (fig. 2). To seal the seams on your rainfly, set it up inside-out for easier application. Attach the rainfly to the tent so all seams are taut (fig. 3).
TEAR & HOLE REPAIRS: Apply just enough Seam Grip to cover the hole and spread 1⁄4 inch beyond. Allow to dry (cure) level overnight. For 2 hour cure time, mix Seam Grip with Cotol-240™ before applying. (fig. 4)
SEAM TAPE TIP: If a small section has peeled use Seam Grip to re-attach it (fig. 5). If the tape seems to be failing everywhere, remove and discard it, then clean the seams with isopropyl alcohol and re-seal with Seam Grip.
Note: For silicone-treated tent and tarp fabrics, use SilNet™ Silicone Seam Sealer and Sil Fix Adhesive.
