Frequently Asked Questions – Ripsnorta™ Horse Rug Repair System

How many repairs will I get?

Each repair is individual and only an average can be stated. As a guide, the approximate repair capabilities of a 250g unit with a 50mm width of Repair Fabric would be 2 lineal metres, or an average of 8-12 repairs of 8cm each in length.

How long before it's dry?

This depends on the ambient temperature but as a guide, 2-3 hours. However, it is recommended to leave overnight.

What type of rugs can it be used on?

The Repair Compound is suitable for use on canvas, cotton, synthetic and most other commonly used materials.

Do rugs need to be clean?
