Cuben Permanent Repair Help Question on 06/30/2014 07:40:19 MDT Print View

I have some of the heavy duty Zpacks cuben repair tape and I want to permanently patch over a few sections of my Arc Blast were I have stitched on some trail patches.

Q: What glue can I use under the repair tape to make it last longer (not peel away from the backpack after repeated use)?

OR should I just assume the tape will cover over the stitches just fine and just tape it over and be done with it.

Thanks !

The tape should cover the stitches just fine. Be sure to use as much pressure as possible when putting the tape on. Using a roller of some sort is best.

Thanks for the opinion - I ended up doing just that, and so far so good. I think it should be just fine using the roller pin method.
