Shane brought me in
an old wetsuit to the Boat Show in Portland this week and I cut
pieces and tried a number of things. I glued the neoprene edge
to edge - no problem. I also tried dampening the neoprene
first and it glued just fine. Stayed completely flexible.
So you can either patch waders and wetsuits or just try and glue the
tear back together edge to edge.
HOW TO : Before
putting the glue on the neoprene dampen the material. This
will make it so you don't have to use so much glue. Dampen
both sides (not dripping wet) and put the glue on one side.
Put the two pieces together and it should be bonded within 10-20
What's been done to make Miracle Glue different than Super Glue or Krazy Glue is that the solvents have been distilled out. So, as Miracle Glue is pure it is much stronger and there are no solvents to make it discolor and go brittle. It dries clear and flexible. But the real benefit is that you get to use it all. It is stronger than Superglue and has a much longer shelf life! Store it in the fridge and
you'll get a very good shelf life out of it. Most customers keep it for 3 years. Use it at room temperature for best results.
(Take it with you on your fishing or skin diving trip
but don't leave it out in the sun.)
So, it won't melt your neoprene
waders or wetsuits and it will stay flexible and waterproof.
