    Default bonding tyvek

    What's best for bonding Tyvek together besides the addition of sewing? particularly for tieout reinforcements? And what adhesives better or worst than Tyvek tape and carpet tape

    Will any other cheap materials like scrap nylon pieces bond better to Tyvek than Tyvek to itself.?

    Iv'e seen contact cement as an option, but don't know how good it will be for tarp tieouts…
    Am going to experiment with the cc a little..

    How will any withstand use and time comparatively?
    Or whats' the consensus on the best way for tieouts these days???

    I'm sure there is something in this section, but did not see it.

    What kind of edge seem is recommended?

    Have you looked at Tyvek grommet tabs? I'm not sure what the adhesive is, but they're stupid simple to install and hold very well. Should work perfectly for a tieout.

    Here's one example:

    The double sided tape that comes with the Frost King window and door seal kits works great.
