Adhesive supplies in California

I am seeking help to track down a supplier of two part Hypalon adhesive in the California area, and also some thinners We need about ten litres of each.

This is for a re tubing job we have to do in late February. Can anyone point me in the direction of a supplier.

Hypalon adhesive

Chris,
West Marine do 2 part Polymarine hypalon adhesive ;but have only see it in small sizes.
I can enquire if they can get larger if you want?

Also a local guy Brian, (who belongs to the forum ) repairs RIB's and may have a contact for you.

I purchase from NRS in Washington. They carry Clifton adhesives, far batter (IMO) than the Polymarine stuff. They're pretty fast, too (I ordered 2 small cans of hypalon adhesive for my emergency kit, and they had it to me in 3 days.)

I have also dealt with NRS and found them to be very helpful. I am sure they can help out if asked.

Thank you very much for the information. Very efficient and helpful. Placed an order for a gallon of adhesive and thinners and it will be in Santa Barbara CA within four days.

Ok Chris,
how the heck did you get a re-tubing job over here????
Or are the US companies ,so expensive that it's cheaper to fly you over

Quite easy really. It is not really a question of being cheaper(although with very special transatlantic flights on offer at the moment it might well be cheaper) but one of time and also the fact that the patterns for the tubes would not be available in the States for the RIB in question.

Hi there,
the glue mostly used is BOSTIK 2402.
It is a 2 part neoprene glue for hypalon.
You might find it easy over google.

Greetings from Germany
Mike

Hi, Mike;

For some reason, Bostik 2402 seems to be just about impossible to get in the US. I have yet to find a supplier in 3 years of on-and-off looking. Hence my suggestion for the Clifton adhesives.

I did like the way the 2402 performed, but it's prohibitively expensive to have my boat manufacturer (in Canada) send down a small can every 6 months when the glue goes off from aging.
