How To: Patch a Hypalon Boat (5:09)

Properly patching a Hypalon raft or cataraft isn't difficult, but it does require specific tools, supplies and techniques. In this instructional video, the NRS Repairs Department shows you the materials, adhesives, solvents and skills you need to successfully glue a patch on your inflatable boat. This information applies to Hypalon, Pennel Orca and rubber inflatables. The same techniques can be used for gluing air-holding patches, D-rings and foot cups to your raft or cataraft. The video also includes tips for making temporary field repairs on the water.

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.

  • Toluol (Toluene)

    Q:

    I need to re-glue a previously glued "patch" (for the canopy frame to my boat), and both surfaces are covered with old glue.
    What do you recommend to remove the old glue?

      Hello Martin,
      Toluol works well for old glue removal.
      So does Methyl Ethyl Ketone Peroxide MEKP.
      For really stubborn spots I used a "Scotch Brite" type 2" round abrasive pad in my die grinder.
      Hope this works for you.

      A:

      Martin, I'm assuming your boat is coated with some sort of synthetic rubber. Toluene should soften the old glue and allow you to scrape it off. Heat, as from a heat gun, can also be effective at softening the glue.

    Q:

    Can this be used to thin Clifton Hypalon adhesive?

      A:

      Bob, as long as the Clifton Hypalon is partially fluid you can use a bit of the toluene to make it more fluid for spreading. However, once the adhesive sets up, toluene will not dissolve it. If you still have questions, give us a call here at 800.635.5202 and ask for the repair department.

    Q:

    Can you use xylol, (xylene) in place of toluene when prepping and repairing hypalon?
    Asked on 8/16/2013 by Wholly Klepper

      A:

      Here's what our manufacturing manager had to say in answer to this question from another customer, "Xylene should not be used. It's very slow drying and does not work well as an activator agent for adhesives." If you can't use toluene, acetone or alcohol can be used to remove oils or other contaminants that will interfere with the glue bond. Like xylene they won't really prep the surface for better adhesion, but they dry quickly. Toluene is definitely the preferred solvent.
