Footpad top coming loose

Postby knot_moving » Sat Nov 02, 2013 12:40 am

Top layer on my sector V2 footpad has started peeling up where i twist my foot by the rear strap. Whats a good adhesive to use to stick it back down?

Weldwood Contact Cement...permanent bond...water resistant...3 oz bottle with cap applicator

Wipe both surfaces using clean cloth and Isopropyl (rubbing) Alcohol 70%..let dry 2 minutes

Apply thin even coat of cement to both surfaces...paying attention especially to the edges

Wait 15 minutes for cement to dry

Join together.....press down firmly all over the edges of footpad and everywhere cement was applied

Safe to go in the water 30 minutes after it has bonded

:cheers:

Sure did use water resistant contact cement on footpads where corners peeled off from board

Works also great if only the top layer of a dual density pad peels off

Once glued back down properly those same corners stay down for good

I've used the waterproof gorilla glue on my SUP that worked pretty well. Cures in 30 minutes with water
