Wetsuit tear repair??

Wetsuit tear repair??

Post Number:#1  Postby IkanBilis » Mon Jan 07, 2008 1:33 am

Being Ichibawa, I experienced a tear in my wetsuit from the broken tiles around the Cheras Pool today. Nothing  much, just about 2 X 2 cm tears, about 1-2mm depth.

Any ideas what I should do? Should I just do a repair with needle and thread before it gets worse, or should I get a "pro" to do it for me? If so, where can I find a pro wetsuit repair shop in the Klang Valley?

Appreciate your feedback, and maybe tips on how not to be so Ichibawa next time would help..

the tailor in Ampang Point can do alteration to your wet suit but am not sure whether they can do patches or not ....

Aquaseal is a good choice for neoprene ...

Where can I get this Aquaseal? How much per tube? I can see in the Aquaseal website, many types, with various applications.. which one should I look for neoprene repair?

That's what I'm thinking of at first too. But I'm afraid the Dunlop glue wont hold when it touches water. Also the Dunlop glue will harden as time goes by.

Yes yes N.A. Price please!  :)
