Does the tube have a CMM, you may find better inspection/repair instructions in there ?

AMM 20-10-52 seems to have what you're looking for, but given they classify the rubber coating as a fire seal, I think you're going to be out of luck.

Its not for strength. Just protection. As a temp repair u may use this red rubber tape heat resistant vulcanishing type.Then order a new tube and plan it for replacement.
At least thats a common sense repair. AOG is the simplest way ofcourse...but thats not you want i guess...
