    Hot sealing silnylon seams

    I found some stuff that actually heat seamed two pieces of poly propelene tarps together to make as one piece. It reminded me of carpet tape that you use an iron to seam with. I wonder if there might be a product out there to use on silnylon material.

    Seattle Fabrics sell special fabric that is heat sealable. It would be cool to have a product that would securely join 2 pieces of sil together, but I don't think something like that exists.
