If a second patch is being applied, proceed with step t, below; otherwise proceed to step v.
Maximum shelf life of mixed adhesive is given in table 3-4. If second patch is to be applied, ensure that it
is done within this time limit. Repair will not succeed if mixed adhesive sits too long.
Let first patch set for a few (approximately 2 to 3) minutes.
Repeat steps n through r, above, to apply second (outside) patch. Outside patch must be aligned with inside
patch (outline of inside patch will be visible).
Allow repair to set until cured before flexing fabric or putting tank back into service. Approximate curing times
are given in Table 3-5.
Table 3-5. Curing Times For Fabric Repairs.
These times are for a thickness of approximately 0.10 inches (0.25 cm); they will be reduced for thicker
sections and extended for thinner sections.
