    Where to Buy Vulcanizing Solution?

    Anyone know where to buy the stuff they include in patch kits, but in a bigger quantity? locally or online. Its called vulcanizing solution - no bike shops seem to carry it outside the patch kits.

    Isn't it just rubber cement, the same stuff you buy at Staples?

    That's what I use as replacement when the patch kit stuff dries out/is used up.

    I use Elmer's rubber cement for at home repairs...you should be able to get it just about anywhere I get mine at True Value.

    I've got a big tube of it which I bought at Home Depot for making a belt out of an old MutanoRaptor....you're welcome to borrow it.

    It never even dawned on me to think about getting rubber cement but I bought 100 Rema brand patches and a tube of Rema patch glue last week from a bike shop on Amazon Marketplace.

    Here's the cement/glue. I didn't buy the large can thinking it'll dry out before I'm done using it all so I purchased a large tube.

    See if this google shopping search works' "Rema patch glue"
