Iron Mend is will be known as Neoprene Patch. The material remains the same as our description and is not made from neoprene.
Iron-on repair fabric. Provides strong, flexible, permanent repairs for neoprene. Lined with Barritex™ for extra abrasion resistance. Iron Mend may be used to repair neoprene dry suits, wet suits, waders, neoprene gloves and boots, orthopedic supports, and lycra body suits. Includes: 10" x 6" Knee-Pad Patch, Reusable Heat Shielding and Detailed Instructions.
BARRITEX is an abrasion resistant yet flexible and waterproof substrate which is an integral part of IRON MEND repair fabric for neoprene. The BARRITEX layer is 'sandwiched' between IRON MENDs nylon fabric surface and its bottom layer of urethane adhesive. BARRITEX is designed to help increase neoprene life especially when IRON MEND is used to protect against abrasion.
IRON MEND HEAT SHIELDING PAPER
IRON MEND Heat Shielding Paper is a unique reusable and heat stable paper used to protect neoprene garments from excessive heat. IRON MEND Heat Shielding Paper allows heat to pass through its surface yet it creates a buffer to help prevent scorching of fabric. IRON MEND should not be used without heat shielding paper. The full sheet of our shielding paper should be used during all IRON MEND repairs (regardless of repair size) to help protect surrounding neoprene from potential damage from overheating.

I used a small piece of the repair fabric on my lycra cycling tights to patch the knee. The patch started to become unstuck on my first ride. I read some other reviews that recommended increasing the iron temperature to high setting instead of medium. The original patch is still attached after two rides and one wash - looks promising.

I used this to patch a hole in my lycra cycling bib-tights and it seems to have worked, it's been through the wash once and is still in place. It was a bit tricky getting the patch to stick - the instructions say you need to do it on a really low setting, but it didn't adhere until I got the iron quite hot. You get a decent amount in the pack.

Bought to repair a brand new pair of lycra bib-tights worn through by a errant velcro strap.
First effort failed - not enough heat to melt 'plastic' bonding layer into the lycra. Turned up iron to medium, kept it on patch for longer(20 secs?) and pressed harder. Perfect result. Bit risky, because it's easy to see how you can melt the whole material, but it's worked for me and survived 3-4 washes.
