i'm making pull out lines for my new tarp. on a whim i selected some 2mm line from a local west marine store. it's all polyester construction has a core with a braided covering. once cut it unfrays a bit and always slides off from the uncut position. if it were a large dia. rope i would simply whip it with standart wipping line- (old school boating skills) but this is small and frankly chemical wipping makes a lot of sense here. iwas going to buy a can of the vinyl "dip-a-rope" ( at 20$U.S...ouy! ), or whatever it's called. but yesterday it occured to me that simple PVC glue, once thinned, would be a lot easyer, lighter- and since i have some of that on hand- cheaper too! a quick look at the labling and i see that acetone is used in the glue. if i thin out the glue with some more acetone or toluene, will that chenicaly harm the rope's qualities?? there are other solvents used in the make up of the glue.MEK and a few unpronounceable ones. i do have toluene, and acetone on hand. the plan is to soak a small section with the thinned solution, and once almost dryed, cut with razor blade and then dip in straight glue (maybe the same thinned stuff- undecided at this point) .
