Tear-Aid® Fabric Repair Kit Type A

SKU: 83211



Tear-Aid® Repair Kit Type A contains clear, adhesive-backed patches 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. These repair patches are 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. They even work on Sunbrella® fabric!

Tear-Aid Fabric Repair Kit Type A patches stick 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.)
