Best Glue, Dyneema X / Cuben Bond? on 09/16/2011 09:42:04 MDT Print View

Hopefully a simple question. Been working on a solo shelter with Cuben which will have a main and second pole (probably most similar to a shagri'la 1 shape). I have some dyneema x fabric which was intended to reinforce the peaks in conical style similar to mld duomid (i assume..)

Used the tape from cubic tech for the ridge and other seams and i have some aquaseal to bond the tieouts. Was considering aquaseal for the peaks but there's a lot of stress up there and i thought someone might have some thoughts on this (or a better adhesive for the job?)

Ive got some samples curing but i'm also thinking long term expectations for the bond?

I'm thinking aquaseal *should* work although I haven't tried nylon to cuben. If you have any scraps test a couple pieces. Aquaseal sticks very well to both typically.
