    Seam grip will work well. If its PU coated and not silicone you can use bonding tape used for cuben fiber. Ive used it to seam seal many of my jackets when needed and works well.

    Send me a PM with your address, I have an opened bottle of seam sealer. I purchased the wrong kind for silnylon. I don't have any PU products. I will send it to you, no charge.

    Coleman seam sealer. Found it on walmarts site for $4.50.

    Can't beat that! That was nice of you! WAlly world carries seam seal for your type of tarp. Its a water based polyurethane product in case you ever need more. Seam grip is probably the best. The poly works pretty good too. Have used it for many years.
