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.
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.

A:Yes this is the same as Hypalon. I have used it many times to successful patch hypalon inflatables. I have used this material to reinforce the keel strip and transom on a Caribe inflatable 4 years ago and it is still going strong.

A:It is pretty much the same as hypalon. It's thick stuff too. Couldn't
tell you how thick, but as least s thick as the bottom material on my
Zodiac FC470. Use the 2 part glue and you'll be fine.Answered on 7/20/2014 by Anonymous
A:George this link explains why we can't call it Hypalon anymore - http://www.nrs.com/tech_talk/pennel_orca.asp. This is our most heavy-duty material.Answered on 7/22/2014 by Clyde from NRS
