    Sure neighbor I'll try it as soon as my tarp gets here. You are nice and close, only an hour away.

    I tried it on nylon tonight.
    w o w! works amazingly well, even with out trying it with the primer.

    I think it would be wise to use WV's suggestion of looking at the 3 M site as to what is 'more appropriate' for nylon, but my little test piece of material
    for a sock looks amazing.

    Yep, not far. I've been to Morristown up that way a couple times, but never Russellville. Just remind me when your tarp gets here and I will send you some to try. It sticks very well to polypro so I'm thinking polyester would also work.

    It does stick well to polyester webbing.

    I used double thickness "tape" and also used primer.

    Although, the adhesive has a tendency to creep, so I also added a couple rows of stitching to help that.

    So this NOT to be confused with a tape which sometime in the last several years was reported at Backpacking Light to perform very well until adhesion was lost as very low (-20F?), and then restored when temps rose. (I can't find the link. The report "sticks" in mind because the lint and dirt was reported to adhere very well during the time the tape unstuck.)

    I'd be interested in hearing how the VHB 9485 works in the field long term. That sounds like an excellent solution to applying tie outs without sewing.

    Ya because from what some people have said it's hard as heck to sew them on.

    A question for Sgt Rock, do you think there would be any strength advantage if the tie outs are sewn after they are laminated between the reinforcements?

    I think the best way to do it is with as little sewing as possible. If there is a good way to attach the tie outs without sewing at all, then I would be all for that. If 9485 can do that, it would be worth it.
