How To: PVC and Urethane Boat Repair (3:11)

It's important to master the skills and techniques of patching your urethane or PVC fabric inflatable boat. In this video the NRS Repairs Department goes over the step-by-step process for finding the leak, preparing the surface of the patch and boat, applying the glue and rolling on the patch. The use of Clifton Urethane Adhesive is demonstrated, but the same techniques work with Stabond Adhesive, Vynabond and other PVC/urethane-type adhesives. Using these methods you can also add D-rings, foot cups and wear strips to your boat.

How To: Inflatable Repair Adhesives Guide (4:16)

When repairing your Hypalon, PVC or urethane inflatable, or your plastic or composite kayak, it's vital that you choose the right adhesive and solvent for the job. Using the wrong materials will result in a poor repair and wasted effort. In this video, Josh from NRS Repairs shares an inflatable repair adhesives guide to help you understand when to use such glues as Clifton Hypalon, Shore, Stabond, Clifton Urethane, Vynabond and G/flex Epoxy. Solvents for repair prep are important too; you'll also learn when you can use toluene, MEK, acetone and alcohol.

      A:

      I used this product to repair an 8" hole in my 12 foot inflatable trampoline and it has held up very well. It is also very important that the patch you use is just as durable as the material used on your boat otherwise chances are you will blow a hole right through the patch (I made this mistake on my first attempt). That being said this product is great and forms a very strong between the patch and PVC tube. Hope this helped.

      Bob, this is a good adhesive for PVC material. Follow instructions carefully and work in a well ventilated space, or better yet use an organic fumes cartridge filter mask.

    Q:

    7 yr old PVC boat, seam between tube and end-cap opened. I read instructions re. patching; but, this is a partially opened seam in a round tube. Seems it will be difficult to clean and prepare the surfaces at the edges of the fault. Any suggestions?

      Unfortunately I don't have any great suggestions. If it was me I would
      just clean it out as best as I could and keep pressure on the seam while it
      is curing, maybe by putting something heavy on it. Good luck.

      A:

      Do not know about end caps but I had to repair a small hole next to the rubbing strake
      so that a ledge of sorts had to be bridged over.
      Made a patch to cover the hole and then another and larger over the patch and rubbing strake with plenty of glue around the inside patch edges to make a smooth transition between the over and under layers. The glue has to dry as the filler is being built up. The tube was once again air tight.
      good luck

      No I don't have any words of wisdom. You're right that it will be difficult but if you put forth the effort you can probably get it done.
      What about getting the manufacturer to repair it? I have an old Jack's Cat and all of the D rings were coming off. I decided that it was well worth the cost to have Jack's Plastic Welding repair it. Especially since they had better adhesives than back when they built the tubes.

      A:

      Warren, I'm not sure what you mean by an "end cap" but there is certainly a lap seam there. If the end cap is rigid and the flexible PVC tube material is lapped inside that rigid part, then yes it can be a difficult repair. It'll be easier to help you if you can email some photos of the area to service@nrsweb.com. Please include your phone number so we can give you a call and discuss the repair.

      A:

      No, it is an adhesive for urethane and PVC-coated materials. For Hypalon inflatables use Clifton Hypalon Adhesive, Item # 1904 or Shore Adhesive, Item # 1906.

      A:

      I don't think so. I do know that these adhesives are very specific to the materials being glued. I have a NRS Bandit ( urethane ) and the Clifton works great. Hypalon is a different material and may need a different adhesive specific for it. I have a friend who glued on some D-rings with the wrong adhesive for his inflatable and they fell off the first  day of the trip.. I would consult an NRS service rep for the correct adhesive for your material.

    Q:

    Hello.

    I'm considering buying these NRS footpegs

    http://www.nrsweb.com/shop/product.asp?pfid=1638

    I'm aware that the clifton adhesive is one of the best but it is expensive (the price/import tax/international delivery etc..) On this site there is a 4 ounce tin of the adhesive which overall is considerably cheaper for me to buy than the pint size one. The clifton adhesive 4 ounce description says it is enough to cover 1-1.5 square foot. Without being able to see the foot pegs I want to buy, would anyone be able to give an insight or confirmation as to whether the 4 ounce would be not enough/barely enough/more than enough.

    Thanks in advance.

      The 4 oz. can should be plenty. If you haven't yet, please check our Dealer Locator - http://www.nrsweb.com/services/dealerlocator.asp - under United Kingdom, to see if someone there carries the adhesive or a good substitute. Best of luck to you.

      I have used a single can to replace (2) "D" rings along with
      multiple transom repairs. Looking at the footpeg picture I would guess one
      can should be just enough to install a pair of them.
      You may want to consider (2) cans just to be sure, probably still less cost
      than a pint.

            I was working on my raft with some PVC glue supplied by manufacturer, but it was really to thick and dried as fast as I put it on. I was adding some D Rings and Thwart Attachments and I needed more glue. I ordered this as extra and it turned out to be better and easier to work with then glue supplied by manufacturer

                  Comments about Clifton Urethane Adhesive:

                  I performed some tests on PVC materials before using, and found this to be very tenacious stuff as long as the prep is meticulous. Pay careful attention to following the directions (2 coats, wait time, roll out air bubbles, etc.- Check out the NRS video) I have found that clamping, whenever possible, yields the best adhesion. You want any wrinkles pressed flat, and the seams fully adhered down. Use plastic wrap to prevent bonding to clamping fixtures. Another great trick is to use a syringe to apply in areas with limited access, or just for neatness- material is thin enough to suck into syringe. If the edges of a patch did not fully adhere, you can use the syringe to fill the void, then clamp (for example). I use the West System epoxy syringes. To clean syringe tip, just suck up water- material gels up in the water.
