Fix Rips in Triathlon Wetsuits

Fix Rips in Triathlon Wetsuits

Any experienced triathlete will know that depressing feeling when they pull on their wetsuit , and their fingernails pierce the neoprene material. Often it is just a small hole and maybe brushed off as “not a big deal”… until the next time they pull it on and a massive rip appears.

The simple solution is to fix the small hole right away.

It only takes 2 or 3 minutes and can be done anywhere; even on the beach.  You just need a tube of Neoprene Queen Wetsuit Repair Adhesive.

Put a thin layer of the black Neoprene Queen glue on the thin edge of the rip (on both sides that need to be glued together).   Leave it for 2  minutes until the glue is touch dry, and then carefully aligned the split and press the edges together again firmly. That is all there is to it! The repair will be as strong as the original material.

We have 5g tubes of Neoprene Queen available and also larger 30g tubes.

Buy a few of the small ones and keep one in your car, one in your sports bag and another at home. You will always be able to fix that small hole in the neoprene before it gets any larger.

I had to pay a lot of money to fix it!

I never like having to replace  a fairly new item just because I have damaged it.

Last autumn a friend spent £300 on a new pair of really good quality wellington boots, only to snag them on  barbed wire last winter and ripping a hole in the rubber near the side of his foot. He was mortified at the prospect of replacing them when he had only used them for a few weeks.

In reality, we often think we need to replace things rather than repair them. But it is not true.

At Stormsure, we encourage you all to think about making a lasting repair with our products. For a small price you really can save a great deal of money.

Stupid Accident…

Ever reversed your car into a tree and smashed out the back window?  Well I have.

Stupid moments can cost money and time especially when you need to travel.  With no glass in the back of my car and rain imminent I had to think fast.  I needed something that would stick (most importantly) and remain watertight and then I remembered my 10m box of STORMSURE’S TUFF TAPE… (and a see through polythene sheet).

I quickly cleared away as much glass as possible, ensuring that the area I wanted to stick on to was clean and dry.  Starting at the top I secured the polythene in the corners and followed with long stretches of TUFF TAPE till the area was stuck too perfection!


National windscreen turned up two hours later ;)…


Need to fix a HGV Curtain-Side effectively and at an affordable price?


HGV curtain sides are difficult and expensive to repair.  Stormsure Tuff Tape and Tuff tape Patches could be the answer.  The products are quick to use, highly effective and affordable making them the perfect choice.

Rips and tears on the sides of HGV’s are unsightly and are often fixed using gaffer tape as an emergency repair.  This, after time frays and gradually becomes ineffective letting water damage further exacerbate the problem.  Tuff Tape and Tuff Tape Patches are an efficient, easy to use and highly effective. The tape is transparent, elastic and will stretch. It is incredibly abrasion resistant, waterproof and resilient.

The HGV’s curtain does not have to be removed and fixed by a third party, this often means the vehicle is out of use for several hours or days.  Tuff Tape keeps the vehicle on the road and in use all the time.  The driver can make the repair himself in a matter of minutes, so there is no wasted time or loss in driver hours.

TUFF Tape is available in:

75mm circular patches

500mm x 75mm strips

10m x 75mm rolls

We also use them in our new range of Repair Kits

They are all available from the Stormsure web shop

New TUFF Tape on sale now.

Stormsure now has its excellent new product called TUFF TAPE on sale.TUFF50

This is a brilliant product. It is a paper backed self Adhesive tape. It is made from the same tough material as Stormsure Flexible Repair Adhesive. If you are familiar with the glue then this tape will really impress you. The tape is clear and translucent and is available either as a matt finish or a shiny finish.  Use it to fix a rip on a rain coat, tent, car soft roof, or a crack in a plastic bucket: TUFF TAPE will do a great job.

Just cut a piece to length to suit the size of the damaged area (and a little extra overlap). Round off the corners with a pair of scissors. Peel off the backing paper and stick it on. Press the tape on firmly to remove any air and ensure good adhesion and that is it.TUFF10m

The tape is elastic and will stretch. It is incredibly abrasion resistant, and it is resilient, even through a washing machine cycle!

We even used it to make a temporary repair on a burst frozen pipe. It stopped the water squirting everywhere until the plumber arrived the next day.

Auto Hood Window Repair – Soft Top and Awning Windows

We have a great new product that we have developed for making long lasting repairs to splits and cracks in flexible windows. This is the type of flexible window you find on a car soft top roof or on a caravan awning or modern marquee.  For auto hood and awning windows

The splits in these windows if often caused by the way the fabric bends when it is folded down or packed away.  Our new  self adhesive Tuff Tape strips are clear and transparent (not pearlescent/matt, like Tear Aid tape). You just peel off the backing paper and carefully apply the tape over the crack, and then firmly press the tape onto the window, to remove any air bubbles or wrinkles. That is all you need to do. The repair is barely visible. It is wind proof and waterproof and should last for years.Repair windows on Auto hoods and Awnings
