Patching is a quick and economical way to prolong the life of tents, tarps, and other items made from industrial fabrics.
Special considerations should be made when repairing an item over new fabrication:
Before repairing your item, be sure to do a test weld with excess patching material to ensure your weld will be strong. Perform a rip test to check the integrity of the weld; i f you can see the scrim of the material, the weld is good. Once you have found the correct temperature and technique, you’re ready to patch your item.
