    Hey guys I got my new Urethane Bane mask in the mail last night and when I went to try it on I noticed a tear after I took it off. I have to stretch the mask a touch to get it on and love the way it fits tight to my head but I fear any more stretching is going to tear this straight through.

    Does anyone know how I could stop this from tearing anymore and be able to stretch it to fit on my head. I am kind frustrated cause I need this to be ready for Phx Comicon this weekend. Any help is appreciated guys!!

    Zap a gap, or another of the superglues.
    Unfortunately other than superglue, the only other repair technique ive seen work is smooth-on's urethane adhesives.

    However, i have some bad news, that will only delay the tear further, if you decide to keep stretching the item.

    After you perform the repair, you might want to put it in a pillow case and put it in the dryer wrapped in towels, get it nice and warm and stretch it over something else to expand it more to size.

    Other than that, there isnt really any other advice to give.

    Thanks for the advice, how long would you suggest leaving it in the dryer if I went that route?

    depends on how hot you make the dryer, i would say that at maximum heat, time it in ten minute bursts until you think it is stretchy enough to work with.

    Just buy some medium zap a gap and the zip kicker/accelerator your repair will be done in a few seconds.

    Where would I find such a substance? Hobby Lobby?

    E6000 Glue (Shoo Goo) with a little fabric patch on the reverse. Super flexible and super strong.

    Aquaseal can take up to 36hrs to cure, so if you can, get the cotol-240 kicker for it.

    Also, i cant remember if the aquaseal is contact based or not.

    I only suggested the supers because of the smallness of the tear.

    Aqua seal did the trick guys! Took about 2 and half hours of drying and voila it's good as new.
