My LHS couldn't get the Balsarite because of shipping restrictions, but for some reason they can get SIG Stix-It. (Perhaps because it is in a metal can????)

SIG is very proud of it (as in it is $$$$) but it worked very well on the Coverite 21st Century Fabric I used as the decking material for an RC sailboat. It looks and smells like rubber cement- dries clear in about 30 min and heat activates with your covering iron.

The Stix-It is on the SIG website under "Glues" rather than in "Coverings". The 8 oz can is product code SIGSX001.
