WEIGHT: Super UL
2023: Color is Pear Green – Matches our current shelters.
Our DCF Repair Tape is a super-strong, quick fix for rips and tears on the main body of DCF tarps, tents, mids, and floors. Made from light-duty 2K DCF with a high strength adhesive backing, this isn’t your standard 3M paper-backed mess; once this repair tape has bonded, it’s good to go for the life of the shelter or base material! Ultra-ultralight, you can toss this repair tape in your pack for quick and painless field fixes.
HOW TO USE DCF PEEL +STICK REPAIR TAPE:
1: Clean the DCF/Cuben Fiber area with regular isopropyl rubbing alcohol.
2: Let dry thoroughly.
3: Flatten the area to be repaired to prevent taping over creases as best you can. You may need some small weights (rocks or soup cans) to hold the area to be fixed down flat.
4: Round corners of the tape before applying.
5: Peel the backing off of the tape, and stick it over the area to be fixed.
6: Press down firmly and/or burnish with medium pressure to get a good bond. Use a smooth, non-hard object to apply pressure. A new and clean tennis ball is a good burnisher for a larger area, but your finger pressing down very hard is OK too.
7: Let cure TWO days for a 100% strength bond. Any curing time is better than none, so do what you have to in the field.
8: Patching small areas or small punctures on only the inside is OK; however, larger areas or ragged tears in stressed areas may need tape inside and outside.
9: Store the repair tape in a tightly sealed Ziplock and store in a cool place when not using. Doing this keeps it good/ gives it about a two-year shelf life before the UNUSED adhesive begins to break down and should be replaced. Once it’s bonded, it is good to go for the life of the shelter and base material.
