Re: Sailcloth



I used Dacron sailcloth to bind Buckminster Fuller's _Tetrascroll_. The
details are in: "Book of the Century"  _Craft  Horizons_,  October  1977.

Adhering Dacron to anything is tricky, particularly to itself (for the
turn-ins). After experimenting with every adhesive then available (1976), I
had a pressure-sensitive adhesive applied to the roll of Dacron, backed with
silicon release paper.It worked perfectly, and over 20 years later they are
showing no signs of delaminating or decaying.
