sealing polyethyleen Answered

I want to make a special tent for my Ford Explorer. I found some nice camouflage polyethylene canvas. Bought it and discovered then that you can't glue the stuff. The only option I can come up with is to seal it -to make it waterproof- but these machines are far to expensive for a one time project. Can some off you clever guys (or girls) help me to make a seal machine -maybe like a stamp?- so I can seal the parts together? Or is there a better solution? Greetings from The Netherlands and looking forward to your reactions. Wolfmanklaas.

You might be able to do this with the tip of a domestic iron, but heat-welding and cutting are only a few degrees (of heat) away. You could use a sewing-machine, double over the seam, sew again. L
