Question Waterproof fabric glue

Looking for a waterproof fabric glue that will stand up great amounts of moisture. I've seen a couple of fabric glues on E-bay, but none that specific to being waterproof.

TIA.

Steve

Aquaseal

Check out Aquaseal. We use it for wet suits made of neoprene and it holds up pretty well.

What you trying to do Steve? Might be able to point you in a good direction if I knew what you want to glue together and then go swimming.

The purpose of the glue

I recieved a new Roadgear waterproof jacket for Christmas. I want to add my CMA patch to the back, but don't want to damage the waterproof capabilities by sewing the patch on. Therefore, I need a very strong waterproof glue to meet that need.

I'll second Aquaseal, its great stuff available at every dive shop.
Hint: store it in the freezer and thaw when you need it, otherwise its pretty much a one time use product.

I think you are going to find it difficult to permanently bond your patch with glue, there are so many variables regarding textile finish along with non stick and waterproof coatings like silicone and polyurethane which may not work at all with any glue.

About the best you can do is machine sew it on with polyester thread (not nylon) using the smallest needle you can, 10 to 12 stitches per inch, and then use a seam sealing tape over the holes on the inside of your jacket. Complete instructions are here:

http://www.seamtape.com/manual2002/PG01-TITLE.htm

The next problem is which seam sealing tape will stick to the textile that the inside of your jacket is made from. ...and that is a VERY good question!

I think you'll find that water penetration is not going to be an issue at all if you use a small needle...

One other route to go is use 3M Super 90 spray glue. Use your patch as an outline and draw around the outside of the patch with a pencil, chalk, whatever. Mask the outline so that when you spray it you don't get overspray on the rest of the jacket. Spray a very fine mist and SMALL amount on the inside of the outline and back of the patch. Less is more. Wait 1 minute, join them together and press hard with a roller. Let it dry for a couple of hours and with any luck it will be stuck on for life.

It is doesn't you just ruined your new jacket!

Pliobond works pretty good as well.
