TEAR-AID® Repair Patches provide a simple and easy method of patching holes and tears, as well as an excellent protective film solution. Each TEAR-AID® Repair Patch is made from an exceptionally tough, matte finish, abrasion resistant elastomer that resists puncture and tearing. This is combined with an aggressive adhesive formulated for high bond strength. Tear-Aid expands absorbing force on impact and always returns to original shape and size. This flexibility allows the patch to conform to irregular surfaces without restricting the movement of the repaired material.
Type-A patches are excellent for repairing not only all of our TPU products (Vectos, Vesicas, Bucs) but the rest of your gear, too: keep a patch or two in your repair/emergency/first-aid kit to fix waterproof fabrics, shelters, sleeping pads, quilts/sleeping-bags, and more!
Clean the surface you want to repair with soapy water or rubbing alcohol. Dry completely. Cut the corners of your patch into a rounded shape and press firmly onto the hole. Stretch the edges of the patch to seal, avoid creasing or bubbles under the patch.
