Remember I asked about Bostik 2402?

Well I asked about Bostik 2402 and how good it was so that I could repair a split in my drysuit sock.
Did the job yesterday after getting a freezing cold wet tootsie again.
Followed the instructions, waited for the requisite period of time and then just as I placed the patch onto the sole of the sock 'er indoors decides that the moment had come to depart rapidly for the shops.
I looked around the garage for something to put pressure on the patch in my absence and spotted a bit of 4x1 plank and a bag of cement.
Loverrly! Plenty of pressure over the patch!

Arrived home four hours later and discovered that some glue had "migrated" from the patch onto the plank

I now have a built-in waterski on one foot of drysuit

Good effort! 501 thinners will help remove it...dunno how good other thinners will be, you wouldn't want to damage the drysuit.

if you cover the patch and surrounding area with chalk dust or a type of "talc" before you apply pressure this will stop anything sticking to it.
If the glue migrated from under the patch then it sounds as if you didn't allow the glue to go off sufficiently before you applied the patch, it was still too wet.
