    Thanks for the indication. I found a product which description is similar to the Rema SC 2000, it's called Vipafix. I will give it a try.

    For you guys that use adhesive in a tube, how do you apply it?

    For aquaseal that comes in the big 8oz tube, I thin it about 10-15% with acetone and brush it on. Dries quicker so I can get a layer on every 45 minutes. Slightly thinner layers, but very little trouble with it running.

    In my experience, straight aquaseal is hard to work with - runs and it takes forever to dry. I sealed a zipper, a neck and two wrist seals all at once recently while the suit was on the hanger.

    ETA: aquaseal is a sealer, not an adhesive to attach two items in the way I use it.

    I used marine goo from the shoe goo manufacturer when no other glue I tried would work properly. I have not tried the gorilla glue.

    It was to glue a sitech necktite ring to a whites drysuit inner suit which is like vinyl. Gluing polyurethane like in the semi flexible sitech necktite, quick cuffs, etc to very flexible vinyl is as difficult as it gets.
