I Purchased this product a few months ago and am pretty happy with it. I used it to install hip pads into my Sea Kayak. Seemed to work pretty good until my first roll and the it all came un-glued. Pretty average glue and I think a little pricey.

This stuff sticks like, well ...like glue!

About Me Advanced

Pros

  • Sticks well to many difficult substrates
  • Weather Proof

Cons

    Best Uses

    • Any bonding to plastics especially polyethylene
    • Apply a thin film of vaseline to the cap threads

    Comments about H2 Glue:

    This is the best adhesive I have found for difficult, low-surface-energy substrates, such as polyethylene, PET and other thermoplastics. I apply a thin film of Vaseline to the can threads to prevent seizing of the cap on storage. I have made a career in adhesives chemistry, so I know a good one when I see it.

        Q:

        Can you use this glue to attached a rigging kit to a sit-on kayak?
        Asked on 6/17/2016 by doggonecreative

        • VERIFIED BUYER

          A:

          Depends on what two pieces of material you are gluing together... Plastic
          to foam works, many plastic to plastics work but you generally need a
          decent amount of surface area contact. When you say "rigging kit" I
          usually think those are attached by drilling holes with bolts and nuts or
          grommets and rivets. If you can provide more details, name of exact
          rigging kit and which piece you want to glue I could say yes or no. I
          would recommend "loctite" on bolt threads with nuts if you want to really
          ensure security. Using a rivet tool is better and not very
          expensive. Search YouTube...lots of great DIY videos on how to install
          rigging correctly on kayaks.

          A:

          Perhaps this glue will work, however I think it will depend on how much pressure will be applied to the rigging. This glue is amazing for things like adding extra thigh bracing or other padding type needs. I have not tried it for non porous items.

          If you're talking about gluing on closed foam padding for hips, knees or seat padding, yes. I've used it to outfit my wife's root boat, as well as both of our Pygmy wooden boats. It's easy to work with and holds like there's no tomorrow.

          Not sure what you mean by a "rigging kit." H2 Glue is great for gluing on foam outfitting. G/flex Epoxy is a good choice for items that will have a lot of stress applied to them.

          A:

          I'm sorry but I don't know the answer to this question. The glue lasted only a couple of years for me so I think I bought the wrong glue for my product. I would call NRS and try to find someone who is knowledgeable about all these products before you buy anything. I was so anxious to get on the water I did not do thorough research. The instructions with all of the glues I purchased were minimal and there was little to no instruction about compatibility. As I result, I had these beautify placed patches with extra handles but within two to three years of use they all fell off. I tried to glue them back multiple times without success. So my advice is to seek the best advice, don't purchase until you have done so and spare yourself the wasted money and effort.

          Mike, H2 Glue will adhere to the vinyl skin of the Royalex. Use it if you're gluing foam to the hull, say to add flotation. If you're gluing on things like D-rings that will have force applied against them, use Clifton Urethane Adhesive, HH-66 Cement or G/flex Epoxy - http://www.nrs.com/category/2988/rafting/pvc-pu-adhesivessolvents - Give us a call if you have questions, 800.635.5202.

          Yes, it probably would hold quite well. Haven't tried the "foam to metal" bond, but using this for foam to fiberglass as well as foam to rotomold, it sticks amazingly well.
          Go for it!

          Hi,
          NRS just sent me this random email to help with your question.
          I used the H2 glue to hold Ethafoam blocks to an aluminum rail that I used
          as a canoe rack on my car. That was several years ago and the bond is still
          holding strong. At this point, I think the strength of the foam would give
          out before the glue. I imagine it would work just as well for the foam on a
          metal box/cooler.

          I used this product to adhere neoprene knee and hip padding to an RPM a
          few years ago.
          It has very good adhesion and is long lasting. Coat both surfaces, well
          cleaned, and press out completely--no air bubbles. The stuff is thick,
          so it takes quite a bit to get a good coating.

          I used it to attach minicell foam pads sold by NRS to the interior of a fiberglass sea kayak. It has been installed for about 5 years and has held up very well. None has detached and foam has not deteriorated at all. Kayak has been used modestly and always stored in protected location. Very satisfied with performance. Hope this helps.

          I used this product to attach the dark gray foam blocks for hip control to a
          polyethylene kayak with no problems. Roughening the surface of the plastic
          with sandpaper will help adhesion. Do not expect this product to be strong
          enough for structural use. Foam floatation can be removed without much
          difficulty.

          No, Dave, it's not compatible. Use Clifton Hypalon Adhesive, Item # 38701.01, for that job. It's the same glue we use to build our hypalon boats. And Clifton Hypalon Accelerator, Item # 38702.01, should be used with it for air holding and high stress areas, for maximum strength.
