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:

    Question: How to fix a 10-inch long centerline crack in the bottom (at bow) of my Mad River ABS canoe. Even the Kevlar skid plate split down the middle! My idea: Drill holes at crack ends. Outside: Bond skid plate together with (?) epoxy and put a fiberglass/Kevlar patch on top. Inside: Fill crack with (?) ABS adhesive. I prefer using cheaper, locally available products over costly, hazardous, special-order ones. What about 3M 5200, Vynabond, Devcon epoxy, Goop? Your thoughts appreciated.

      Take a look at this article on using G/flex Epoxy 655, Item # 2272, to repair cracks in a Royalex canoe - http://www.epoxyworks.com/26/pdf/Repairing_Royalex_canoe.pdf - It's not expensive or particularly hazardous (I've just been using it to patch a garden ornament!). The instructions for the epoxy are linked on the product page in the More Information box. Good Luck.

      That's a little beyond my skills but I do have some experience trying to bond West system epoxy to an ABS Mohawk canoe. It was their standard epoxy and hardener ( with fiberglass) applied to a small crack low on the bow. As soon as I hit something the patch came off nearly in one piece. I would stick with products made for your canoes' material and use enough glass to overlap the crack by three inches. Good luck.

      A:

      Hi,
      A couple of years ago I attended a lecture on canoe repair. The speaker was a guy who did repairs in a local paddle shop. He claimed that they got a lot of use out of an inexpensive, readily available product called Devcon Plastic Welder. I went out and bought one (about five bucks). It is a two part squeeze tube affair, I have only used it once and that was to fill in gouges, not repair a crack. It worked well and held up to repeated scrapes in bony creeks.
      I do think you are on the right track. Stop drill the crack is step one. Then you might think about masking tape on the inside to prevent the filler/adhesive from running through. Fill the crack and tape over the wet fill material to prevent sagging. Once that is cured, you could put a fiberglass patch on the inside or outside. I do believe the Plastic Weld stuff can be used in place of resin for the patch. I would not use kevlar for patching material as it is hard to work with and will "fuzz" up when subjected to abrasion. The Plastic Weld sets up fast (about 5 minutes) so lay everything out ahead of time. It cures to a hard finish. If you want to use more traditional stuff, for about 20 bucks you can buy some West G-Flex epoxy. With either material, sand well, wipe with solvent, and "flash" the area to be repaired with a propane torch (this improves adhesion).
      My experience with 5200 tells me that would do the job also. I hesitate only because it may have silicon in it and once you get that on the hull, nothing else will stick to it. Also, it does not dry really hard for a long time.
      Good luck,
      Peter

      Sounds like a pretty good plan to me.  I've seen whitewater canoes with many types of patches.  None of which seemed to affect their performance..   The only product I've used that you listed is Vyna Bond and that was only for d-rings.  But it worked great and I was more pleased with it than the more expensive H2 Glue. 
       
      I've forwarded this email to a friend who does a lot of repairs, alterations, on his fleet of canoes.  Perhaps he can help.  You can also contact Spencer Canoes in Martindale, Texas.  They build racing canoes and perhaps can send you in the right direction.
       
      Good Luck!

      A:

      definitely drill the ends of the crack.  If you can pop off the old skid plate (not likely) that would be best.  Otherwise, bond the crrack together using g/flex or some other abs-compatible epoxy, then put 2-3 layers of s-glass over the old skidplate.  kevlar felt resists expansive forces but does not handle compression forces very well.  better for inside of the boat, not so good for skidplates (weird to me that that is so popular).  for heavier-duty repair, also put 2-3 layers of kevlar (s-glass is ok if you dont want to buy both kevlar and s-glass) on the inside.
      on the cheap, you could just drill the ends and fill with marine goop.  if boat only gets light use this would probably be sufficient for a long time.

      A:

      Hi
      I am not sure what the correct treatment is. Howver I have used a
      combination of acetate (the solvent / cleaner) and scrapping / buffing.
      Scrapping is more likely to damage the base fabic however, so caution
      should be used. However leaving clumps of previous glue will prevent a good
      seal that can withstand the pressure of the infated craft, so there is
      little choice. Sometimes I have used a larger patch than necessary if I
      have been concerned about the intergrity of the seal. Good luck

      A:

      It can be a bit of a pain. I have tried several different products and
      they all require quite a bit of elbow grease. A scraper and a little heat
      can help a lot, but be careful as to not melt anything. Mineral spirits
      work wonders, but that depends on what material you are removing from. To
      finish it off sand, sand, sand (careful of the residue). If you are going
      to be doing this sort of thing a lot an orbital sander would be a good
      investment.

      A:

      On a PVC boat, methyl ethyl ketone (MEK) is the best solvent. Be sure to wear gloves and work in a well ventilated area. And use caution; MEK will dissolve the material's PVC coating if used too liberally. Soften the old glue, then mechanically scrape it off. You can also try heat, like with a hair dryer, to soften the glue. Sanding can work, but be careful not to remove too much material coating. Whichever method you use - be careful!

      In my experience, yes. Need surfaces to be roughed up with sandpaper, clean, dry and within temperature range of product. Pre-treat both surfaces with acetone. Apply thin coat of glue to both surfaces waiting until it's almost dry (tacky - a few minutes depending on temperature). Press surfaces together and get all air bubbles out. Put a weight on it and wait for a day..

        My mother's dog chewed (2) big holes through my kids towable tube. I purchased a (1)oz of Vynabond and PVC fabric. Repaired both holes with 6" patch over each location. Applied the products per the videos (Sand, clean, & applied 2 coats of Vynabond on tube and patch before sticking it). Have used the towable for a week solid on the lake riding up to 4 people on the it. No issues.

              I used Vynabound to attach new D-rings and Scotty mounts to fishing pontoon raft. Watched NRS video multiple times on how to use product, and that really helped. If you carefully follow directions, you end up with a professional looking job. My first attempt was not perfect, but from then on it was easy. Very happy with results.

              This stuff is really strong, but be sure and only use at recommended air temp and outdoors -- I was in open garage and after a while the fumes mess with your head.

                Great product! My new boat came with some factory outfitting that used contact cement as adhesive...contact cement does not work on royalex for outfitting...so I redid the boat using Vinabond. I've had multiple trips in it since the repairs and it is hiolding up great!
