    Some contact glues WILL NOT stick to certain suits. I used regular contact cement (3M I think) on a Bare suit and it didn't stick for very long. The bad part is that it was recommended on several of the dive boards. I peeled it off and used Aquaseal and all is well. BTW, Aquaseal is also available at some sporting goods stores, (gander mountain, bass pro) for the repair of hip waders.

    I've used AquaSeal to fix a couple seam issues and it works great. Learned something new.

    Just remember that Aquaseal is a permanent sealer and when used as glue, will not release when you need to change again. If you replace your latex with Aquaseal, the second time you will either have to cut the old seal off at the material line or grind it and the hardened Aquaseal off to get to the suit material.

    Oh ... and it is a LOT cheaper under it's generic name ... Shoe Goo.

    I use pliobond for most seal replacement now. Great contact adhesive for latex, available at local hardware stores and releases with heat for that next change. PB 300 from Os systems is probably the best adhesive for seals, just pricy.

    I have been using the dry adhesive system from Dive Right In Scuba:

    http://www.diverightinscuba.com/cata...al-p-2212.html

    It works great, is quick and easy, and best of all there is no mess. You do not need to wait for the glue to dry either, just do the swap and go diving. The next time you need to change seals, just heat up the seal and remove to put the new one on.

    I was leary at first, but it has proven to be a great system for me.

    Heat gun or hair dryer will soften up the AquaSeal when you need to change seals again.
