Suit patches are made from flexible plastic with a light reinforcing mesh for strength and have an adhesive coating on the back which can be used in atmosphere or vacuum. They are designed to patch breaches in vacc suits or hostile environment suits. They are unnecessary for small holes on self-sealing suits.

Application of a patch takes ten seconds and is done by pulling off a tab protecting the adhesive, pressing the patch over the hole. and holding until the glue sets. The patches come in a pouch which can be attached to the suit in a convenient location by an adhesive strip. These patches are not meant to be permanent because they are weaker than the suit material. More permanent repairs should be made at the first opportunity.
