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 a 30 year old avon with a seam leak. It's in the rear chamber where the tube transitions from round to the conical stern. Would this product work as a seam leak repair?

      A:

      Happy New Year! I too have an old Avon Inflatable, however it is a 16' Pro, and not the Zodiac style.
      The Avon material is compatible with the pennel orca seam tape, which NRS sells in Black and flat.
      I have used this with Stabond glue, or other hypalong glues.
      Toulene solvent.

      A:

      It should work, Joe. As far as I know Avon has always been made with a Hypalon/synthetic rubber-coated material. We recommend Clifton Hypalon Adhesive, Item # 38701.01, combined with Clifton Hypalon Accelerator, Item # 38702.01, for this job. It's the same combo we use in building our boats.

      Mike, it is compatible for gluing to hypalon, and it is sold by the foot so you can get that length.

    Q:

    Can you tell me what the V tape is made of and its thickness?

      A:

      This tape is used in the construction of our Pennel Orca (hypalon) inflatables. The woven polyester fabric is fully coated with neoprene on one side (the inner side of the vee) and lightly coated on the other side (probably just from the pressure of calendering the coating to the other side). It is slightly less than 1 mm thick.

    Can this be used as hull reinforcement on a Folbot?

      A:

      We use this product when building our Pennel Orca (hypalon) boats. Look as I might I couldn't find out what Folbot uses for skin material. You can adhere this to PVC with Stabond Adhesive. If you are gluing it to a rubber material, use Clifton Hypalon Adhesive.

      Hi Bob, I used this to repair the bottom seal on my Zodiac.  It worked great, and a great price too.
