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.

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 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.

            Great for exposed areas

            Comments about Roller Rasp Hand Tool:

            The rasp end is a great size and has just the right coarseness for plastic raft materials. Woodworking rasps tend to be too coarse, metal rasps too fine. Sandpaper is messier, slower, and less targeted.

            Curve of rasp is optimal for an exposed area, but makes it unusable getting into tight spaces, or up against an intersection. The rasp plate is far from the tip. I ended up cutting off the tip, including the welds, then straightening the tool. This worked great (though no longer as good for exposed areas). Might consider buying a second one and not modifying.

            Wheel end works great- the little teeth on the wheels make it work better than hardware store seam or screen rollers.

            • Professional Repairs
            • Quick Fix

            Comments about Roller Rasp Hand Tool:

            I used this rasp along with the Orca (hypalon) fabric patch sold by NRS to repair a knife stab size hole in a AVON hypalon dinghy. The rasp made for easy surface prep, although the rasp material would be better if it extended all the way to the edge of the tool so that it could fit into corners better. The roller wasn't that useful for me since it is so narrow, and the repair was in a tight spot near the tube/floor junction.
