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.

    Q:

    how long before inflating?

      A:

      Complete curing can take up to 24 hours, depending on conditions. If you have to inflated prior to that try not to add full pressure to the chamber.

    Q:

    How much Staybond do I need to adhere a 8' x 11' or12' sheet of filon to the same size sheet of 1/4" plywood?

      A:

      The product we carry for Hypalon and PVC repair will not work for adhering filon to plywood. You'll need to use Stabond T-440 for this job. Go to www.stabondco.com to purchase.

      A:

      Allen, we contacted the manufacturer and here's their reply: "should give you 130-150 ft² of laminated material per gallon using a spray gun. At 3 grams of dry adhesive on each side (filon and plywood)" If you're brushing it on it would probably take more. Looks to me you'd need three quarts. You might get more detailed information and help by going right to the company - www.http://stabondco.com/

    Does Stabond require a cool, low humidity place for installation?

      Dick:
      I used Stabond with its accelerator successfully this July in SW New Mexico. Temps were high 90's with single digit humidity and I got a very strong bond in a high stress area on my raft (foot tabs). Nine floats later the tabs are holding flawlessly. Follow instructions carefully and keep a sharp eye out for how it's curing. Stay focused and you should be okay.

      A:

      I have used Stabond a number of times in a hot garage (around 90 degrees F.) with humidity over 70%, and it has worked perfectly every time. Since you have to use the recommended amount of catalyst to ensure proper adhesion, the only result of the heat is that the Stabond begins to set faster, so you have to work with smaller quantities or work more quickly than in lower temperatures.

    A great pvc glue. My 94 zodiac yachtline needed a complete reglue. Stabond was the best choice. Follow the directions strictly and it'll create a permanent bond between the pvc. I also used it to glue the tubes onto the fiberglass hull and its working fine. I used it hard for 6 months this summer and its all holding strong

    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.

          Excellent bonding strength. I've read online that this is the best adhesive for PVC boats and I have to agree. I followed the instructions to a "tee" and all the davit, D-ring & stand-off pads look great.

              1st time using Stabond for me. But I gotta say, this stuff is really good. I tried it after a friend recommended Stabond to fix a 4 inch slash in my nearly new inflatable raft. I watched the video from NRS on repairing PVC, twice. I took my time and followed the instructions in the video in every detail. It came out perfect. And tough as nails too. Thanks to Stabond for making something that works and thanks to to NRS for showing exactly how to use it in order to get the maximum potential out of it.
