Where do you buy hypalon in North America?

I was wondering where everyone buys Hypalon. I'm looking to do some large wear patches in black and I want to get some good Hypalon. I could probably save a lot of money if I cut the Hypalon myself. I also want some small leak patches in gray. I'd love to hear if anyone has any suggestions.

I found DuPont's Pennel Orca material at http://www.nrs.com/product/1963/nrs-...material-1670d. It seems like a good deal. Anywhere else I should look for hypalon?

Thanks,

John

That is where i get material in small amounts, they have fair prices and are easy to work with.

Thanks Ryan. I was also thinking about buying Stabond and Toluene there as well...unless someone else has a different recommendation.

Although it looks like they recommend Clifton Hypalon Adhesive for Hypalon to Hypalon adhesion. Has anyone used Clifton and how does it compare to Stabond? (I understand it is supposed to be a little easier to use but I'd be interested if anyone here has used both).

I just recently discovered I am not happy with my stabond, it's gotten brittle and is delaminating after only a year or two.

I think I'm going to try the Clifton now.

Ryan, any insight?

I've used the Weaver 2-part hypalon glue; seems to work well. I get it from Sal's Inflatables in Alameda (mostly because it's local.) I think it was available at NRS as well (at least at one time.)

glue

Weaver glue is re-labeled Polybond. You can buy 2 part polybond at West Marine or larger qty from Defender.

Good to know.

I prefer to avoid the West Marine "higher is better" pricing.

Yeah, that place is a ripoff. I avoid it unless there is an emergency.
