Please, please, please weigh the kite before and after the treatment, and also borrow a porosity meter (or make one: https://vimeo.com/124682223 ) and make a bunch of tests before and after to capture your results. It would be great to get some conclusive results to really nail down the preferred mixing ratio and application method/number of coats for the foil communities use.Ivar wrote:Finally some wind to test! The air valves open up better now but unfortunately the pressure inside the kite is still insufficient to keep the leading edge rounded instead of hollow. Some more experienced surfers checked the kite and couldn't find anything abnormal. Saw someone else with a flat front as well. Kite looked very new but unfortunately I didn't get the chance to speak to the person.
Just ordered 2 large tubes of marine goop, 2 litres of toluene and an el cheapo airless paint gun It might take some time before i get this done as I'm about to leave for 5 weeks. I'll post my results!
