    could the "surface energy" of, lets say poylprope or even nylon be increased by wetting out the contact portion of the loop with something like pvc glue ( maybe thined out with acetone) then allowed to dry before introducing the 3m adheasive?

    Great write up SGT.

    Thanks a lot for inspiring others to work with this stuff.
    Now I have cuben, VHB backer, and down all over the workroom!

    This is easier than sewing if you ask me.

    Note on the Primer: It is not just a cleaner. It adds some type of tacky substance to your seam. The 9460 sticks far better with primer.

    USE THE PRIMER WITH CUBEN AND 9460 ADHESIVE. IT IS NOT OPTIONAL IMO.

    Have fun everyone

    Surface energy of a material is related to its molecular structure.

    Just adding something, unless it reacts with the material, substrate won't change its surface energy. Polyester (Mylar is a polyester trade name) is not a particularly low surface energy material I think it get identified typically as being "medium". Polyethylene (spectra/dyneema) is definitely low surface energy.
