      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

How do you patch a hole in Pebax shells?

Recommended Posts

I accidentally punched a 1cm hole in the shell of my Scarpa Alpha boot. Does anyone know of a good way to repair it? I asked Black Diamond, and they said that because the shell is made of "Pebax", nothing sticks to it for very long or very well.

 

Anyone out there know of a good sealant or epoxy for patching a hole in Pebax?

 

Many thanks,

Steve

1) seam grip will stick to just about anything. try roughening up the shell first with sandpaper

 

2) get a soldering iron and melt the pebax slightly around the hole so it fills in. DANGER 1) plastic fumes, 2) you will void your warranty.

Stephen, I don't know what Pebax is exactly, but try talking to a good whitewater kayak shop, they usually know someone who can do plastic welding.

I'm reminded of Dru suggesting that someone run a flame over their Schoeller jacket to get rid of piling not too long ago.

 

Think her warranty is voided? yelrotflmao.gif
