No heat solution for repairs/patching or other work
I've used Seam Grip in two ways: for the typical repairs (torn or seams giving out), as well as a preemptive treatment for alterations (adding straps or panels) I've made to some items. After making repairs or additions, I used Seam Grip to seal the stitching, allowing my repairs to be just as waterproof as the rest of the gear.
The resultant seams and repairs worked well, were waterproof and only the larger areas came out somewhat less flexible than the surrounding area. Certainly not enough to interfere with the function of the piece, but sometimes making it harder to fold/pack an item neatly.
The process worked well, though I found using just my fingers or a separate brush was easier than trying to apply directly from the tube. Given that any remaining product rarely survives storage...once opened/exposed to air it is going to set up eventually, even in the closed tube...I would recommend sticking with the 1oz. tubes, unless you have a very large amount of work to do on your gear.
Overall I was very satisfied with the result, as I found regaining the use of the pieces was more important to me than their appearance, post repair.
Great for fixing a convertible top, too!
After reading multiple blog posts on how best to manage a recent split at the seam of my 2000 VW Cabrio top, I decided to try the Tenacious Tape on top of the Seam Grip. Following the application instructions for both products, the top remains water tight and flexible. As I was simply looking for one more season out of this "stored in winter" low mileage vehicle, I was absolutely pleased at the easy, economical and effective fix.
