Basic repairs on drysuits are relatively easy if the correct materials and tools are
used, if however the work is not carried out correctly then this may cause a failure of
the suit during use. If in doubt about any work that needs to be carried out
return the article to the supplier or manufacturer.
We recommend that the replacing of dry zips and dry boots only be done by experienced workshops or they should be returned to the factory.
It is essential when using glues and solvents that the necessary safety precautions
are followed. We recommend that you use Stormsure 2-part neoprene adhesive
for repairs, but any neoprene based glue for marine use should be suitable. Use
Dunlop T559 solvent for cleaning and thinning adhesive, alternative toluene based
solvent may be used. Repairing holes in neoprene drysuits is easier using Aquaseal
urethane repair adhesive and sealant from McNett. Make sure that you request the
Safety data sheets for these products and observe the handling, storage instructions
