In What should I put in a bicycle emergency patch kit for situations more severe than a common puncture? I see that user2617804 points out there is no tag for Patch

I was going to add it as a synonym for Puncture, but are there may be times when its a patch for clothing, or an embroidered patch, for metal patch on a frame.

Does Patch need its own tag instead ?

I’d argue that no, patch doesn’t need a separate tag. In context, we understand that a patch is something you would do to a tube that has punctured. The other use cases mentioned above are not cycling-specific, or else not something you would be able to do on the road side (i.e. applying a metal patch or even a carbon fiber patch).

    As a point of interest, there are actually water-activated fiberglass repair products., which could conceivably be used roadside.

    @MaplePanda that is very interesting, but I might pass on repairing a carbon bike with that product.
