Repairing Inflatables

Repairing an inflatable depends on the nature of the problem.  In general, using stitching to repair a product is more durable than using an adhesive.

PUNCTURES, HOLES AND TEARS. These can typically be repaired using a needle and strong thread or fishing line.  While material is puncture resistant, it is no puncture proof.  Using thread can keep the tear from running.  The repair may be made by simply sewing up the tear itself, or sewing the patch to the inflatable.  Alternately, the patch may be adhered using the adhesive supplied.  If you need adhesive or a patch kit, please contact us.

SEAMS SEPARATING.  If the seam separation affects the performance of the inflatable, it must be repaired using a needle and strong thread or fishing line.

DE-LAMINATING.  De-laminating is typically characterized by an inflatable that will not hold pressure, despite a properly-functioning blower.  This is usually caused b a combination of mildew and humidity, regardless of whether mildew can be seen.  There is no repair for de-laminating.
