Anybody ever used Bostik 2402?

I've got a hole in my drysuit sock that needs welding and have been given some Bostik 2402 adhesive (two pack stuff). Apparently it is a wunder glue that works great but I just wondered if anyone else has used it and what the thoughts are on it?

No, for that you need some patented codprawn wonder glue, available from a store near you.

If its neoprene better using Black Witch or Aquasure just clean it and put a dod over it.

I brought up this same problem two weeks ago (if you check back you will find the thread).

Silicone worked very well in the end.....

same stuff (and similar...mine wasn't actually 2402) is used to stick hypalon tubes on RIBs. The tubers will be able to give better advice but from my experience, two thin layers of glue to each surface with something like 20mins between coats then lots of pressure when you stick it on. The longer you leave it between applying glue and sticking, the less freedom of movement you have to correct any mistakes.

Oh and it gives you a headache after a while

thanks for the replies folks. If it stops the water getting to me delicate tootsies and freezing them I'll be a very happy chap indeed.
