Hypalon or PVC

PVC or Hypalon? Polymarine Paints, Adhesives, Parts & Accessories

This should help.

Hypalon & PVC are very different to repair. With hypalon simply mark out & prepare tube & patch or seam & seam. Try to carry out in warm weather or indoors. If not its a heat gun warm up. Apply 2 layers of glue with the correct amount of hardener. Thinning glue down gives a more even coating. Glue has to be touch dry before adding another coat or sticking together. Drill & flap wheel is best for preparation. Don't go too deep or you will see fabric and that's not good.

PVC is different in that preparation is with sandpaper & hand. Power tools melt the material. Before you apply glue use thinners on the material and between each layer as glue needs to be slightly tacky when coating or preparing to stick. The clever way to know when it's ready is to touch the glued surface with a latex glove. If your finger ends up 8" from the material and the glove is still on the glue. It's ready. To wet or too dry and it won't stick. The glue will bite into the fabric over a few days.

PVC & hypalon glues are different.

Is there any hypalon that is not over neoprene? As far as I know all hypalon material is hypalon exterior bonded to a neoprene lining with polyester fabric in between?
