Having already posted last year about resealing seams briefly in the Henry Shires Tarptent Moment Garden review. I thought I would cover it again as I have to seam seal my Army DPM tarp.
I have had this tarp for many years and it has served me well. However, the time has come to do a bit of maintenance to the seams on the inside and outside. I had a few drops of water come through in the centre of the tarp on my last outing.
100% Silicone I have used aquarium sealer.
A mixing pot and stirrer.
A applicator in this case is a foam brush.
The required silicone (estimated) is placed into the mixing pot then add a small quantity of white spirits and mix with your choice of stirrer. At first the two products will not want to combine and be careful the spirit can splash around if your to vigorous at the beginning of the mix. In time the two will blend into together. If you have not added enough spirit add a bit more, if its too runny add some more silicone until you have the consistency you want. I generally mix mine to the consistency of thick home made soup.
