Got a small split in your leading edge or some pin holes you don’t want to get worse and it’s not big enough to warrant a professional repair?
Dr Tuba sticky backed Dacron is the answer!
Dacron strip with a very sticky acrylic adhesive back.
The pack contains one Dacron tape 5cm wide by 300cm long plus two alcohol wipes*.
*Pieces sold without alcohol wipes in multiples of 10cm lengths. If you require 5cm x 30cm add 3 to the basket, if you needed 5cm x 60cm add 6 to the basket.
Longest length available is 5cm x 300cm. (full roll)
- Cut off any fabric threads from the damaged section (if any)
- Clean the area with alcohol wipes and leave to air-dry
- Cut the tape to desired length and round the edges
- Peel & stick the tape over the tear overlapping it by at least 2cm
- Firmly press the tape and remove all air bubbles
Glue the tape edges with a thin layer of Aquasure PU glue when working on uneven sections otherwise the tape can peel off.
