    Neoprene glue

    Hey guys,

    Slightly off topic but I'm after a glue of some sort that would be good to fix up my wetsuit. Its the same material as the neoprene waders I have so thought someone out there may have some grand idea of what to purchase (trying to avoid buying a new one if I can). I've been lucky enough not to rip my waders in the 5 or so years I've had them so am not too sure. I've looked on the net and found many conflicting answers so any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Cheers

    Aquaseal Urethane Adhesive . Most shops that do fishing gear will have it or can get it . Used it on my own gear and sold a pile of it for fixing waders its really good

    Try Selleys windscreen sealant. That stuff sticks anything.

    You want a product called "black witch". Comes in a red tube with black writing on it. Designed specifically for neoprene. Hold the cut in your wetsuit open with clothes pegs, apply thin bead on each side, let it go off, take the pegs off. It'll stick like ....

    You may have to google or eBay it tho

    On a similar subject, any one here knows a good place for wet suits repairs? I mean big patch up, not just a little cut. Preferably a place that does sewing also , not just gluing. Thanks

    Don't use aquaseal to glue two pieces of neoprene together. It doesn't have enough stretch, and will tear apart.
    Use this stuff - I have fixed rips in wetsuits up to 30cm long, and the repairs have lasted as long as the rest of the wetsuit.

    So did you pull the two sides together and glue in that way or did you have a third piece that acted as a patch?

    The two sides were pulled together. The glue was placed on each side of the rip, and left to dry. I put a second coat on each side, and left that to be just dry to the touch. Only at that point were the two sides brought back together, and pressed firmly together. Job done.

    I HIGHLY recommend Seaquel products on the North Shore. They are awesome, eg made my old lady a custom suit for less than what an off the rack one cost elsewhere. Do a shit ton of mods to suits for all the shops. Go have a look, they're also ridiculously cheap
