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.

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.

    Q:

    I have an 1995 racing Dux PVC inflatable. I am converting this to a drift river boat.
    I have been having a few seam repairs due to age. I was wondering, can this tape be used over existing seams for reenforcement/ repairs? Or am I better off doung a complete reglue?
    Thanks Mike Thiel aroundsound@live.com

      A:

      Mike, this seam tape is intended for use with synthetic rubber materials like Hypalon. While you can glue it to PVC with Stabond, Item # 38704.01, you'd be better off using a PVC material. I suggest # 38015.01. Use Clifton Urethane Adhesive, # 38700.01. To get the best results, re-glue your existing seam tape, using the Clifton Urethane, then reinforce with the above material. Give us a call, 800.635.5202, with questions you have on the repair.

      A:

      I used it over all my seams as added protection. I have a hypalon tube, and it has worked for two years with no issues until recently, I have about a foot section that has come unglued due to air bubble, probably applicator error rather than material failure. Prep, Prep, Prep, is my best advice. I also did three strips of tape, one above the seam, one below the seam, then last piece on top of those two straddling the original seam, the two strips on the bottom give you more original tube to grab, it ends up being 5 in. wide with final piece on top to join them together.

      A:

      This material is Hypalon on one side and neoprene coated on the other. You could adhere it to fiberglass, using something like our G/flex Epoxy Adhesive. There probably would be a better choice however.

      No, not at all. This is the tape used for hyplon inflatable rafts. It
      requires a contact cement like glue.

      No- that is what's used for the seams int the tubes of a hypalon raft. I
      s'pose it could be used on a fiberglass boat but it'd be serious overkill.

    Q:

    Will this work on West Marine Inflatable (PVC) RU 260. I thought to reglue
    original seams and then overlay that repair with this tape. Is
    this a good plan? Does this tape come with adhesive??

      A:

      You have come to the right place.
      I do still have the same dinghy and have probably the identical problem. That is that the bottom seams come apart and the dinghy gets water inside. The problem is, that the stress on the seams is to big for a normal person of 180lbs when you stand on the slats. I even added a plywood floor to reduce the stress and distribute the weight to a larger area of the seams.
      Then I bought 2 long strips of Hypalon and a can of the special and expensive glue that West Marine recommends. I did cover the whole length of the seams outside on the bottom. And also re-glued the open seams from inside. It seemed to work for a short while but not for long until water penetrated in again.
      In spite that the glue turns to ugly brown color, it does not hold Hypalon and PVC nor PVC to PVC together. The question is whether a better glue is available on the market to stick these materials together ??
      For me, the solution was to retire this dinghy and buy the newer model with solid segments of plywood for the bottom. Unfortunately I am stuck for the total length to fit the dinghy under the boom or else I would opt for a different brand. So far it works well for the past 8 months and I think it is a better product. The disadvantage is, that it is much more difficult to deflate the dinghy, take the bottom segments apart before rolling it up.
      The old dinghy in question is just a back up in my hold and a toy for the kids, but I would not like to rely on it on my long off-shore cruises.
      I talked to West Marine about these issues and that the old design of a dinghy should come off the market for safety reasons. All the did, they gave me a newer set of slats as the first ones broke, but it does not solve the problem that the seams are still under to much stress. Therefore I think there is no better solution to this problem, unless may be a thermal weld or a better glue can be found on the market. If a Hypalon dinghy would fit under my boom, I would replace my dinghy, but at this time I am stuck with PVC..
      I hope this helps to your questions, or else please let me know. If you find a better solution, I am interested.

      A:

      The "tape" doesn't come with glue, and you probably don't want to patch PVC with orca
      (hypalon). They require very different adhesives.
      Get some of the Aire PVC material and cut it into strips. Use a PVC specific cement.

              The ends of the 2.5" strips are cut at a 45 degree angle, which limits use. It's great for splices, but that's a rare need, and ended up wasting a foot or so. Also, the edges weren't cut straight, and I had to spend 1/2 hr trimming stuff so I wouldn't have tags flappin around.
