Connecting two pieces of P-Tex

Post by BRAND2102 » Fri Dec 13, 2019 1:11 pm

I have a very large foot a size 18 to be exact. I decided that I was sick of toe drag on my snowboard so I bought materials and planned to build my own board. Unfortunately I couldn't find material wide enough for the boards base. I'm wondering if it's possible to connect two pieces of ptex together. I know it's possible and that large companies do it all the time I'm just wondering if I have to melt the two pieces of ptex together or can they be glued. Also flame treatment, how much "flame" do I need to get a good amount of bonding and do I sand the surface before or after I flame treat the ptex.

Any help you can give me would be greatly appreciated thanks.
