Tuff Tape repairs nearly anything that's ripped, torn, leaks water or low pressure air and requires a flexible repair. Perfect for tents, awnings, canopies, sails, air beds, kitesurf bladders, inflatable toys, cracked buckets, truck curtains and thousands more applications. It works on Nylon, Vinyl, Canvas, Rubber, Ripstop, Mylar and a heap of other surfaces. The Translucent finish means when applied it will match the colour of the surface it's applied to reducing the visibility of the repair.
Tuff Tape is 0.2mm thick, stretchy and flexible. It will stick to virtually any material (except sillicone) and is easy to cut in to shape and apply.
Clean the surface of the kite's bladder, allow it to dry then peel the paper backing and apply in to position. It's that easy!
If you're in a cold environment or repairing an older bladder use a hair dryer or heat gun and carefully from a distance apply some heat to the repair, warming it slightly and then apply pressure by rubbing the surface of the tuff tape. This helps the adhesive on the tuff tape to lock on to the surface of the bladder for a longer lasting repair.
Repairing Tears/Rips in Kites
Cut the Tuff Tape to shape, allowing for about 3cm excess around the tear in the kite's sail. Clean the surface around the tear and allow it to dry, then peel back the paper backing and apply in to position. Rub the patch firmly for about 30 seconds which helps the adhesive on the Tuff Tape lock on to the surface for a longer lasting repair. Once you have repaired one side of the kite's sail repeat the process and apply a patch to the other side of the sail.
