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: 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.

    when applying the material as a rub guard (where the metal touches the boat), during the prep and chemical application process, does the raft need to be inflated or deflated. thanks

      A:

      I would apply the material while inflated so that it will cure into the proper shape.

      A:

      I am no expert but it seems logical to me the boat be deflated so both
      materials stretch at the same rate when inflated. Maybe partially inflate
      just to keep wrinkles out and make it easier to apply.

      A:

      It’s best to have it inflated during prep, just to make sure you don’t miss anything in a crease, etc. but not absolutely necessary. It is also much easier with it inflated.

      A:

      I would recommend inflating & pressurizing the boat prior to applying
      the rub guard. This ensures that it is installed in the same state in
      which it will be used, and that any stretch that may occur is also
      duplicated.
      I installed one of these in this fashion years ago, and it has been
      working very well.

      A:

      It can be done either way. When the AIRE material is being coated, the inner woven fabric is stretched taut as the coating is applied, so the finished product stretches very little.

      Comments about AIRE PVC Raft Material:

      it was intimidating to get started (sanding the raft). watch the video at leasat 5x's (for me, watching the video was helpful). when i had questions, answers are readily available online, the NRS staff is a valuable tool. i purchased the NRS stern seat/side rails/motor mount for my inflatable. the pvc material was used in areas where the bars/connectors come in contact with the raft (added security/maybe just peace of mind). ONLY RECOMMENDATION i would make, in areas where material does not lay out flat, and the size/cut is in an ackward place or unusual cut, over seams at the stern, use more than one set of hands for final placement.
