    from the Lawson site:

    For Bonded Construction, I recommend using 3M Primer 94 to prime the seams before taping. This cleans and etches the surface which results in a much stronger bond.. For the seam tape I recomend using 3M 9485PC or 9472LE. These materials can be found at http://3m.hillas.com You will need to call in your order since their system is setup for case pricing but they will sell you one roll of tape and one Ampule of primer if need be..

    For Sewn Construction, I recommend using a small needle, a bonded nylon or polyester thread, and a LONG stitch (6-8 Stitches Per Inch). For the strongest seams, hems, and panel patches I would bond and sew since this resists peeling.

    i tried rshughes today and they were fresh out.
    they had plenty of primer though
