I would think normal wetsuit repair glue. I buy the cheapest per ml available as price and volume varies significantly, I think my current tubes are by dive company Spetton and I was pleasantly surprised how well it works. Strong, black, flexible and elastic. I think Picasso sell something similar, possibly called something like Black Witch.

Note: you can get glue that is made of neoprene. We never did work out if this is the same thing.

Hi guys , what’s the best glue for sticking a chest pad onto a wetsuit ?
I second the recommendation for wetsuit repair glue. A common brand here is AquaSeal. I believe it is a urethane glue and should stick to the woven nylon fabric covering that most wetsuits have. It is a tenacious glue. It is claimed as flexible, but in my experience it can be hard if used to fill voids or in excess. A thin layer under a pad shouldn't be noticeable. A quality rubber cement, such as Bostik or the 2-part glues for hypalon boat repair, would also work well, though I don't know how they would handle the nylon skin. You might have to remove that from the glued areas.

I would love to know what type of paint wetsuit manufacturers use on smooth skin suits. I know of a Greek diving store that sells it in small quantities but i rather make out myself of i would just know what it’s made off....

Someone one this forum must know I would guess.
