NSeal™ Seam Tape

NSeal™ Seam Tape
NSeal™ Seam Tape

NSeal™ seam tape is an iron-on tape that provides a waterproof and long lasting finish to sewn or welded seams of Neoprene, Lycra, and a wide variety of similar materials.

Covering the seam tape with a piece of paper is a good technique that will help shield and protect your iron and the tape. Preheat your iron which should be set to "silk" or the lowest steam temperature without actually using the steam. Press the iron down with firm, even pressure for 10 seconds. Lift and rotate iron; apply for another 10 seconds. Allow the bond to cool for a few minutes before testing adhesion. After the seam tape cools, check for any loose edges and use the iron again if necessary.

Seam tape provides additional strength to the seam and stretches in every direction to provide a longer lasting bond. Available in black. Seam tape is 20 mm wide (approximately 0.79"). For added seam strength, use Aquaseal®.

The following video on "How to repair a wetsuit" gives some good instructions on different techniques of applying adhesive for neoprene repair as well as a good example of ironing on seam tape.

Velcro Hook and Loop

Hook and Loop
Hook and Loop

We have a wide selection of hook and loop to meet your needs. This is military-grade and will hold up very well. Rolls are available in widths of 0.5", 0.75", 1", 1.5", and 2" wide (1.3, 1.9, 2.5, 3.8, and 5.1 cm). The rolls are all 25 yards (22.9 m) long. Each hook and loop roll contains a single-side; that is, either the hook side or the loop side. You can choose sew-on backing or peel-and-stick adhesive backing. We stock white, beige, and black hook and loop. More colors are available by special order; contact us for other colors or to take advantage of volume discounts.

The peel and stick is not strong enough on its own for most applications. Consider using 2" of one side with 3/4" of the other side. This will make it easier to separate.

Return Policy:

Hook and loop is not returnable.

Aquaseal® Urethane Repair Adhesive & Sealant

Aquaseal® Urethane Repair Adhesive & Sealant
Aquaseal® Urethane Repair Adhesive & Sealant

The leading solution for repair of gear used for watersports as well as wet and dry suit repair. Perfect for sealing and protection from tears and scratches. Great for use around the home and in the field.

DIRECTIONS FOR NEOPRENE REPAIR: Clean damaged area with solvent (paint thinner, nail polish remover or similar). Trim loose threads. Non-fabric surfaces should be roughened with sandpaper, and then cleaned. Apply Aquaseal® to surfaces directly from tube or with knife or flat stick. Keep repair level overnight. Avoid contact with other surfaces. Most repairs reach full strength overnight (10–14 hours). Allow longer for thickest repairs.

HOLES AND TEARS: Create backing with removable tape. Fill void and 1/4" beyond edge with Aquaseal®. Remove tape after full cure.

SEAMS: Apply 1/16" thick bead overlapping seam edges by at least 1/4". Apply with slight pressure to saturate fabric surfaces.

HIGH WEAR AREAS: Apply thin coat with knife for flexible abrasion resistance.

WARNING: FULLY CURED AQUASEAL® IS SLIPPERY WHEN WET. For added traction on footwear, sprinkle sand on uncured Aquaseal® half an hour after applying.

CLEAN UP: To remove Aquaseal® from hands, buff with cloth soaked in paint thinner, nail polish remover, or 99% isopropyl alcohol.

STORAGE: Advance contents to tube neck. Wipe clean and cap. Keep in cool, dry place; for extended life, place in freezer. To thaw or for easier-flowing contents, soak tube in warm water for 15 minutes.
