Patching latex tubes

I've just fitted latex tubes to a new set of wheels I'm going to take out for their first spin this weekend. Question is, can I use a normal puncture repair kit with latex ?

    I honestly don't know, but a spare tube(any kind) would be in order.

    I believe you can, I have in the past and had no issues with the patch lifting.
    I've added a signature to prove it is still possible.

    Yes you can use the same patch kit on latex. I've found that patches stick even better to latex than butyl.
  • Thanks all ! Fingers crossed I won't be applying any patches this weekend...
