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.

once the glue was dry on both surfaces I needed to heat it up with a heat gun in order to get my patch to stick... once it sticks, it's quite strong. Still wound up needing a bead of West System G-flex around edge of patch to keep the edge of the rubber/fabric from catching on rocks. Many hands make the job much easier.

    Comments about Stabond Adhesive:

    I was an airship rigger and urethane adhesive is used extensively in that trade. Now I sail a Hobie Cat and there are many coated and uncoated fabrics associated with sailing gear and equipment. In my opinion Stabond UN1133 Urethane Adhesive is an excellent product, comparable to the adhesive used on commercial and military lighter than air vehicles.

    Comments about Stabond Adhesive:

    Excellent product. Just follow the instructions (outlined in one of the NRS videos) and achieving a super strong bond is easy. While more involved than preparing and using a simple vinyl glue, the bit of extra prep, mixing and time is worth the final result. Having a eye dropper type syringe will help in measuring the accelerator, as only a small amount is needed per batch. I've used Stabond to repair an inflatable SUP, as well as attach d-rings to the deck and mount extra fin attachments.

        Hello fellow shopper, Stabond is always the best adhesive. it's all we use in our shop for all inflatable materials. if using all the adhesive in the can use all the catalyst.half use half for pvc wipe surfaces with MEK apply 2 coats of glue allow it to dry between coats about 15 minutes, then on second coat apply patch when adhesive is tacky or let dry and reheat with a heat gun to activate adhesive ,happy boating

        The bonding of either of these adhesives will be adversely affected by high humidity. Do your best to pick a lower humidity day, or try to work in a space where the humidity can be controlled.

      • VERIFIED BUYER

        A:

        I don't think either one will bond well in high humidity. The Clifton is easier to use because it doesn't have a catalyst but has a weaker bond. I have had good luck with both but used the staving for the structural repairs. Both stink to high heaven and can't be done in the house. MEK based.

        holes over the years and have not had a leaky patch. I wouldn't think that

      Can stabond be used to glue PVC to wood transom?
      Asked on 9/11/2015 by Robert from United States

      2 answers

      • Staff Reviewer

        A:

        Robert, Stabond will definitely bond to PVC. We've not tried gluing PVC to wood with it. We've asked Stabond about gluing to wood and they say they haven't tested that. I suggest a test where you glue the material to a scrap of wood to test the bond strength. One adhesive that I know bonds those surfaces is G/flex Epoxy, Item # 50215.01. The only issue with it is it's not a contact adhesive; the repair has to be clamped or weighted until it cures. One ingenious solution I saw for this was in a video where they screwed fender washers over the repair to clamp it. After it cured they went back and filled the screw holes with epoxy. Either way, be sure to take the wood down to fresh wood and really roughen it to give the glue good purchase. I wish I could be of more help.

        Yes. Coat the wood transom with the urethane spar varnish. make sure the spar varnish is been out when applying it to the wood so that it penetrates is deeply as possible. Use multiple coats of spar varnish. Then follow the instructions on The stay bond to glue the PVC to the spar varnish coated wood. Another method would be to put layers of stay bond adhesive directly to the wood and test it. Either way this is the product you want to use.

        Rubber to PVC, yes. Rubber to wood. Not sure. If I were you, I would put a polyurethane spar varnish on the wood first then try the rubber to wood. It should work. Make sure you put two or three coats of spar varnish on and follow the manufacturer instructions on all products. This is a very timely process. Good luck!

      • VERIFIED BUYER

        A:

        Not familiar with Gflex. Stabond or Clifton wil reglue the pvc floor. my
        zodiac floor unzipped too. I reglued the original joint and then glued a
        double strip to the bottom boat seam. used the heavy pvc material from nrs
        cut into strips. these adhesives actually melt the pvc and weld them
        together. follow the directions exactly and it will never fail again. the
        glue is like contact cement. once you touch the two surfaces together they
        will never pull apart again so make sure they are positioned correctly.
        probably essential to get the old glue off completely. the pvc needs to be
        prepped with MEK which may get the old glue off. nasty stuff that is best
        used outdoors. good luck. this held for 8 years until the rigid
        inflatable floor debonded internally. I hate zodiac.

        for PVC but I can't speak to that.
        I found the 2" surface prep disks worked very well on a small air die
        grinder. The surface prep disks are like scotchbrite pads. very
        controllable (with some practice) to lightly scuff or heavy removal. Check
        your auto paint supply store. I used 2" twist lock style.

        Lester, either Stabond or Clifton Urethane Adhesive, Item # 38700.01, will work well to bond PVC to PVC. I don't know if any solvent will loosen the G/flex. You can try using a heat gun to soften it. I suspect you'll have to remove it mechanically, by sanding and/or scraping.

        John, I find it suspicious that the manufacturer would mix PVC and Hypalon materials on their boats. You might want to further research that with Achilles. That being said, Stabond is the best adhesive we've found for joining those two dissimilar materials. If it is synthetic rubber on synthetic rubber, we recommend Clifton Hypalon Adhesive, Item # 38701.01.

It will cure without the catalyst it is just not as strong of a bond .Think of it like a super glue the catalyst gives it the super bond..Hope this helps ,Steve

        A:

        The adhesive really doesn't build up, it sort of absorbs into the PVC and
        semi liquifies it. When the two parts are pressed together it welds them
        into a permanent bond with no real adhesive thickness. It swells up a bit
        but as the MEK evaporates, the swelling goes away. Follow the directions
        exactly. I have forgotten how many layers and the MEK prep but the number
        or coats and time inbetween are important. Low humidity is important too.
        The stuff stinks to high heaven so it needs to be done outdoors or with a
        good resperator. Solvent gloves are needed too as MEK is not good on the
        skin.
