    Hi all
    I was wondering what the best glue would be for a seam for this material, it is a prototype life-raft i am making for university, so the seems are 'virgin' if you like! I have heard of gorilla glue, 3m 5000, and usual 2 pack glue but what will be flexible enough? My design is very much alike a lifejackets construction. thankyou!

    I do know that neither Gorilla Glue nor 5200 are suitable...somebody will come back with the right answer...Good luck

    Does the manufacturer of the material know something?

    PU coated material could be caulked together with an MS polymer or (2K) PU glue. There are very flexible ones available.
