Vinyl Shelter Repair Patch
Vinyl is one of the most versatile materials that you can use for a shelter. It’s tough, waterproof and fairly durable, at least until it gets a tear. Unfortunately, the same oils that help vinyl to repel water also make it harder to get patches to stick. Over time, the oils in the vinyl interact with the adhesives used for most patches and cause them to get gummy. In the past, this meant having to throw out perfectly find inflatables and expensive shelters when they got a tear. Now, however, a vinyl shelter repair patch can be used to restore large tents and other types of shelters without the need to constantly reapply a patch. Tear-aid Repair Patches contain the inhibitor that blocks oils found in soft sided vinyl’s.
Event shelters are designed to be impressive, and the last thing you want is to have a big, ugly green patch on beautiful white vinyl. Fortunately, Tear-aid vinyl shelter repair patches come in a clear film that can easily cover up tears without detracting from the shelter’s aesthetics. This means that you can repair holes anywhere and rest assured that no one will be the wiser.
