- Q & A
No more tears, just tears of joy.
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Yes I've used it to repair a puncture in my patagonia rio gallageos waders. But it offers many more uses. Pictured is my patagonia down sweater which suffered a 90 degree rip in the shoulder. It was just under a .25 inch but it was bleeding down every time I wore it. I figured why not try the loon wader repair? Squeeze on a bead larger than needed, use a piece of clear plastic to flatten it out, hit it with the Loon mag lite and in less than 10sec it's hardened enough to remove the plastic. Then take a pair of very sharp (fly tying scissors work well) and cut down the flattened circle…I've found the wider the circle is the more prone to peeling. I'm not sure if the loon wader repair, boat repair, knot sense, clear fly finish are all the same product but they are all UV curing. I have a mix of about 15 bottles around, and keep some in the glove box and of course in the fly fishing bag.
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
Thankfully I haven't had to use this product for what it was intended... I have however put it to good use. I bought two of these, one to throw in my pack in the event that an unfortunate accident were to happen in the field, and my primary use as a head cement for tying flies. You can literally use if for just about anything that needs gluing, I even used it to stop a leak in a CO2 keg tap! The adhesive is UV activated, you can just leave it in the sun and it will work but the Loon UV Mini Lamp makes this stuff rock solid in no time!
Is this effective for repairing a tear in...
Is this effective for repairing a tear in ski pants?
There is no reason why this product won't work on other non-wader garments made from GTX or other waterproof materials.
