Helpful Hints

Tip #1: For maximum adhesion in porous surfaces, using a standard blow dryer will help the adhesives bond with the surface. Continued firm pressure will help increase adhesion.
Tip #2: FLEX TAPE’s™ adhesion will increase with time and pressure. Porous surfaces may need up to 24 hours of extra pressure to reach maximum adhesion.
Tip #3: If you are looking to repair a leaky hose, follow the steps below:
First, cover the leak with a small patch of FLEX TAPE™, slightly bigger than the hole or tear in the hose, using firm pressure to get rid of all of the air bubbles. Then take a second piece of FLEX TAPE™ and wrap it all the way around the hose, covering the patch. FLEX TAPE™ is a temporary, emergency repair and is not meant to be a permanent fix. FLEX TAPE™ may not bond to all hoses.
Tip #4: FLEX TAPE™ may resist bonding to the following:
Some highly plasticized materials, siliconized surfaces, greasy, oily or dirty surfaces, waterproof repellant surfaces, porous surfaces and some fabrics. Always test before use.
