      Hi Steve..

      Can you give me a brand name for that clear polyurethane glue? The
      only stuff I've found so far sets hard, and expands slightly when
      curing. I had a go with some bike shop glue and it peels right off
      once it's cured - it just won't stick to the bladder material.

      Thanks again,
      Boris.

      a hard shiny surface like glass, laminex/formica, only put the glue
      around the perimeter of the patch, and then lay the bladder on top
      followed by a couple of phone books.

      have saved customers buying new bladders on holes you would normally
      assume are unrepairable, by carefully using the technique above,
      ordinary sticky tape/cellotape is best to stick the patch down. Good
      luck.!
