my scubapro STEEL COMP DIVE MASK skirt just cracked so the water would leak into the mask when diving.
as shown in figure below (marked in the red circle):

i believe this mask's material is silicone but have no idea whether it can be repaired or not.
can it be fixed via melting? or by glue?

any suggestions?

@Brochman thanks!
this glue looks powerful enough to fix.
however, it would be a lot easier to purchase 3M glues for me because 3M's products are common to find.(it's difficult for me to find the unibond repair extreme due to some reasons)

does anyone know what kind of 3M glues are equivalent to the "unibond repair extreme" which is waterproof and strong?
thanks~! :)

Buy a new one. A lot of time will be wasted trying to keep it going. Unless, of course, you are a vast distance from a dive shop and have no money.
