Works great with rema patches Jul 24, 2010
Do yourself a favor, and buy these patches with the 8oz rema cold vulcanizing fluid. Yes, it'll cost you about $30...which is about ten tubes, but if you ride frequently you'll realize that eventually this will save you a lot of money in the long wrong.
The rema patch and the vulcanizing fluid create an unbreakable permanent bond that you'll never have to worry about unhitching. If you try and peel away the patch it will literally rip off the old inner tube with it. It's that strong and permanent, and it saves you $4-5 every time you do a patch. For cyclists that ride regularly, I can see this saving them a considerable amount of money.
MY PATCHING METHOD:
The key is to sand the area to be patched thoroughly. Make sure there aren't any protruding lines from the inner tube...if there are...sand them down so that the area to be patched is perfectly flat. At this point make sure you've taken all the air out of the tube. Once you do that, apply the vulcanizing fluid making sure that the radius of the applied fluid is larger than the patch. Apply the patch immediately afterward(peeling away the clear plastic with the black/orange patch on it) and press down and flatten the patch with your fingers. Make sure the patch is positioned as centered as possible over the puncture. Lay the inner tube flat on the ground or on a flat surface area. Put a piece of cardboard over the patched area, and then put something heavy on the cardboard like a 20 pound weight or a stack of heavy books, so that there is constant pressure on the patch to the inner tube as it dries. Let it cure overnight or 8 hours and the tube will be fixed permanently.
This is just my method and it has never failed me. If your constantly getting multiple punctures on each ride you might want to try kevlar tires. I use tires with kevlar, but still get punctures...so kevlar tires with these...and 4 inner tubes in the rotation has been lasting me for months without buying a new tube, and I average about 60-70 miles a week(road riding). I've patched well over 20 inner tubes...which translates to about $80 worth of inner tubes if I had to buy a new inner tube each time I punctured.
FYI: The best way to spot punctures is to fill a sink with water, and rotate the inflated tube in the water watching closely for air bubbles.

Finally, enough glue Nov 07, 2012
By David L. Johnson
The first thing you run out of with a patch kit is the darn glue. This is a very good replacement, allowing you to use up all the patches you have sitting in kits with dried-out or empty glue tubes.
goes well with rema patches Apr 29, 2013
By Marcie Ann Glicksman
This is a convenient means of dispensing the glue for home use, but is not ideal for use on the go.
Does the job. Apr 17, 2013
By Robert A. Clark
No more buying a new patch kit every month because that little tube is used up or dries out. This does the job.
If you get the 100 pack... Feb 20, 2013
By Michael J. Johnson
you'll need this too.
The patches that go with this require a great deal of glue to completely vulcanize onto the tube you are repairing. The standard tube of glue simply doesn't go far enough for mere mortals when you buy in bulk.
