Directions

Important Surface Prep Information: Make sure surface is clean and dry. Wipe away sand and dust with damp cloth. Repair underside of fabrics when practical.

For Pinholes:

Dab Sil Fix over hole and 1⁄4 “ (5mm) beyond to seal and stop fabric unraveling.

For Larger Damaged Areas:

  1. Apply peel and stick patch to exterior surface of damaged area to create backing. Press to smooth out air bubbles.
  2. Turn fabric over and prep surface.
  3. Trim sil-nylon fabric swatch to size to cover damaged area and 1⁄4 “ (5mm) beyond.
  4. Apply Sil Fix over damaged area and 1⁄2 “ (10mm) beyond. Adhesive should extend beyond sil-nylon swatch on all sides for best bond.
  5. Center and apply sil-nylon fabric swatch. Smooth to eliminate air bubbles and press down edges.
  6. Allow to dry flat for 2 hours.

Note: Sil Fix will continue to strengthen after curing.

Re-Attaching Guy Out Points:

  1. Apply Sil Fix to webbing. Work into weave with brush.
  2. Attach webbing to tarp. Press to bond all areas.
  3. Apply coat of Sil Fix over strap and out onto tarp 1⁄4 inch (4 mm).
  4. Apply coat of Sil Fix on opposite side where fabric edge meets strap.

Tip: For even stronger repairs, wait one hour after step 2 and then stitch down edges of webbing. Then proceed to steps 3 and 4.

Seams:

Apply Sil Fix to stop seams from separating. Note: For even more strength, allow Sil Fix to dry for 1 hour then add stitches along seam.

Abrasion Areas:

Apply Sil Fix to high wear areas. Smooth to thin even layer with patch backing. Sil Fix can also be used to attach a repair swatch of sil-nylon fabric over damaged area.
