Neoprene to rubber

Postby BonzaiDuck227 » Tue Oct 15, 2013 2:22 pm

What's the best glue out there to bond neoprene to rubber? My cabelas supermags boot started to delaminate a bit at the top away from the neoprene and I really don't feel like going thru the hassle of going there and exchanging them.

Doubt anything will bond those two as permanently as 3M 5200.

Expensive? It's like $6 for a tube. I would 5200 IT and cover with aqua seal.

I couldn't find it for less than $17 for a 1oz tube.

Having used both extensively, that strikes me about the same as putting duct tape on a new weld.

HAHA :lol3: yeh, but 5200 is a polyurethane where as aquaseal is a urethane, meaning aqua seal will have more flex before breaking. something you may want on a very High flex area.

When I've tried repairing splits in the flex areas of boots with Aquaseal, it hasn't held up long at all, but 5200 in the same sort of splits has lasted longer than the boots.
