Default type of epoxy to use on topsheet damage

i ride a gnu park pickle, and I have a little topsheet damage from a collision. My friend told me to use p-tex epoxy on it.

what do you use to seal up any dings and scratches on your board?

I'm confused here. Just drip ptex like you would do a base repair to repair the top sheet???

Yeah, just make sure to smooth it out how you want it to appear aesthetically, as you obviously won't be scraping it off. You can do some trim work, but I generally just drip and leave it be.

I tore a piece of the top sheet off and want to replace it. A piece 2cm x 2cm, I should have been clearer with my repair. Not sure the type of damage for the OP'er. I will need epoxy.

I could see that still going both ways, assuming the ptex wants to bond to the topsheet. Any bigger than that and I am right along with you in switching over to epoxy.

I just tried the Ptex and like you said it did not bond to the core or the bottom of the piece that was torn off.
It was worth the try, heading to hardware store later today.
