 Post subject: anyone got repairing bladder hints
PostPosted: Tue Apr 01, 2003 9:15 am 
was pumping up my x216 when the bladder popped at the knuckle....of the leading edge...

where it popped....the bladder is kind of blown out....stretched a little....

now where there is a split....about a cm+ (1/2 inch) long, the bladder sits up somewhat wrinkled...

anyone had success at fixing this type.....

should i perhaps cut off the stretched part that sits up....and try to patch the split.....or..

perhaps try to glue another piece of similar plastic (off an ole bladder)over the ruptured section?

any and all help appreciated...

seems too little a problem to have to buy a new bladder?

there is a special glue for such cases. not a problem to fix. use similar material.

My ARX 13.5 bladder exploded and the results were worse than yours...

Well, what's the special glue? Is is for plastic bladders or urethane bladders, or does it work for both?

wetsuit repair glue is best topped off with a thin layer of plastic eg an old bladder-- ready in about 60 mins

I would get one of the food savers. Those things you use to reseal food into plastic bags. They work great to fuse a bladder seam back together. :D
