Tear-Aid Type A is perfect for repairing leaking bladders on kites, inflatable tents, inflatable swags and other low-pressure inflatable items. It's also excellent for repairing rips and tears on Tents, Annexes and tarps. The 1.5 Meter (5ft) rolls of Tear-Aid ensure you have more to perform a larger repair or multiple smaller repairs. Tear-Aid also has a considerable shelf life, so if it's not all used immediately that's fine. Store it in a ziplock bag or container in the garage or a drawer inside and it'll comfortably last up to two years ready for when you need it.
How to Apply Tear-Aid
- To apply Tear-Aid thoroughly clean the surface with a cloth, ensure the surface is dry.
- Next prepare the surface with one of the included Preparation Pads cleaning the surface a second time.
- Wipe the surface again with a dry cloth to ensure no residue is left from the Preparation Pads.
- You can now apply your Tear-Aid Patch on a clean, well prepared surface for an instant repair.
Tear-Aid Type A can also be used on Canvas, Rubber, Neoprene, Nylon, Dacron, Plastics, Polyethylene, Polypropylene, Polyurethane, Non-oiled Leather, Sumbrella, Gore-tex, Acrylics, Fiberglass, Aluminum, Polyester, Hypalon.

The tape has repaired a significant tear in the roof of my Oz Trail Gazebo, however, it does seem overly expensive.
the product works great and i recommend it. easy to use.
Does what it says on the box - it fixes kite bladders. You can use it on anything from an invisible pinhole up to long rips caused by blowouts (can do a double-sided repair on those by feeding strips of it in through the hole upside down). Pretty easy to work with - doesn't flop about too much when the backing is removed. Make sure you only stick it to the thing you want it stuck to, as it doesn't come off easily. If you get it stuck to itself, it's definitely time to start over with a new piece!
