I need to combine two plastic tarps into one larger one and want to bond them together (overlapping lap joint).
When I go down to the hardware there are quite a few different types of adhesives so wondering which one to select.
I obviously need something that is flexible, has some sheer/tenstile strength, resist water, creates a waterproof seal - can create multiple beeds and not leak at normal temps (anything above freezing), apply with a caulk gun, fills gaps, etc.
My initial reaction is silicone based since they are usually flexible even when cured. It seems if you add the word "automotive" the costs seems to be higher -- maybe more chemical resistant.
I cannot tell if the "new" adhesives are new (now use clever marketing names) or just better names for older technologies.
