Tear-Aid® Repair Tape (Type A) is a clear, adhesive-backed tape used to repair holes and tears in canvas, nylon, rubber, plastic and more. Tear-Aid's unique airtight and watertight elastic composition stretches and recovers, absorbing the force that causes ordinary repair products to be torn off. This repair tape is durable, flexible and puncture-resistant to protect against abrasion, moisture, saltwater, UV sunlight and extreme temperatures. Great for use on awnings, boat and RV covers, umbrellas, wetsuits, tents, mosquito screens, backpacks, bags, tarps, nylon sails and parkas. It even works on Sunbrella®!

Tear-Aid Repair Tape (Type A) sticks to canvas, rubber, Sunbrella, neoprene, plastic, nylon, fiberglass, aluminum, stainless steel, polyethylene, polyurethane, polypropylene, Gor-tex®, Dacron®, polyester and Hypalon®. (See Tear-Aid Type B for vinyl or vinyl-coated applications.)
