There are 2 types of Tear Aid:

Type A:

Type A can be used on the following:

  • Canvas

  • Rubber

  • Neoprene

  • Nylon

  • Most fabrics

Type B:

Type B can be used only on vinyl and vinyl-coated products only.


[Vinyls have oils that are absorbed by most adhesives which causes the adhesive to turn gooey, gummy, and ultimately lose bond. Tear-Aid vinyl repair patches contain an inhibitor that blocks the oils found in vinyls resulting in a long lasting repair.]
