What is it? When cured (dry) Seam Grip is a very thin, clear, elastic urethane rubber.
How it works: Seam Grip is applied to a stitched seam, a hole or a tear and allowed to cure over a period of 8-12 hours. When applied, Seam Grip cures by reacting with humidity in the air. It doesn't 'dry' the way other glues do. It changes from a moderately thick liquid to a thin, flexible, elastic rubber. Once cured, it's permanent. The repair will generally last the life of the item.
Additional User Comments: Users are always impressed at the extreme toughness and waterproofness of seams sealed with Seam Grip. We have had users make tents and tarps without stitching by simply bonding all the seams with Seam Grip. The results have been incredibly strong, waterproof shelters. Many users have commented that "factory seam tapes last a certain number of years, but Seam Grip lasts forever."
Users have sealed seams on tents, packs, outerwear, boots and much more. Seam Grip is also heavily used to patch holes in tents, packs, clothing and other gear using the 'plastic tape backing method' (see diagram under the instruction tab)
