Repairing boots
 
I've got a pair of snowboarding boots that I've had for many years, but they've only been used for a week on snow. However I'm off on holiday again, but when I got my boots out some of the rubber has come away from the material (not sure what it is).

I'm looking to do a self repair, but need a glue that will be able to stick it back together, will obviously have to cope with low temperatures, water and flexing.

Anyone suggest anything good?
Cheers

I use McNett "Freesole", clamp it and let it dry full 24 hours

Contact cement is what you need to use.

Apply to both surfaces, wait until it's tacky, line up, press.

Done, no clamping.

I tried polyurethane glue - it is originally used for adhesion and sealing of fixed car windows, airplane hull panels etc., but its applications are quite diverse due to its characteristics: elasticity, vast temperature variation tolerance, extreme durability. Apply and clamp, let cure for about 24 hours (always read manufacturer's description) . The downside is it comes with a high price tag, but it works like a charm, good luck!:thumbsup:
