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.
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.
Finding and fixing leaks in the valves on your inflatable raft, cataraft or inflatable kayak (IK) is an important skill for boaters. Here NRS repair guru Josh Gile demonstrates the steps with a Leafield C-7 inflate/deflate valve. You'll use basically the same steps with other types -- Leafield B-7, Halkey-Roberts, Summit and military valves.
Top-quality Leafield C7 valves are found in all current-model NRS rafts, catarafts, kayaks and SUPs, as well as many other inflatables. One of the advantages of the C7 valve is how simple it is to repair. In this Quick Tips instructional video, the NRS experts show you how to repair a Leafield C7 valve quickly and easily.
The valves in your inflatable raft, cataraft, kayak, SUP board, body board or pool toy is a critical part of its performance and longevity. If a valve fails for any reason it needs to be replaced. Here we show you how to do that, using a doughnut patch to cover the incisions you make to remove the valve's inner piece. This repair procedure works on an inflatable made of Hypalon, PVC, urethane or any other boat material.
A leaky pressure relief valve can reduce the performance of your inflatable raft or kayak. In this instructional video, the NRS Repairs Department shows you how to inspect, clean and fix your pressure relief valve so you can get back out on the water. The Leafield A6 Pressure Relief (PR) valve prevents damage that can be caused by over-inflation in NRS and other manufacturers' inflatables. All self-bailing NRS rafts and kayaks come with an A6 PR valve in the floor. A leaky pressure relief valve is usually caused when grit or debris impedes the seal.
