Clean enough for re gluing

Hi all

I have removed a very old patch that was coming away on my rib, I have hand sanded , used a small fought wheel on a dremil, acetone it, but I still seem to have a yellow film, it's not softening with acetone and I am getting worried even hand sanding that I am going to cause worse damage

So the question is does it look glueable now or am I going to have to find another way of getting it all off.

Thanks in advance

It should be fine. Ensure that the material is lightly scuffed and wiped again with solvent on the same day before gluing, to ensure the oxide layer is removed and the coating is "keyed".

Keep in mind though, for elastomers, you should be using toluene or xylene as the proper solvent.

Thanks, it's toluene I was using, having just run down to check the tin ��, looking at my on photo, the area looks bigger than it is, the patch is 10cm by 8cm but it's on the bow so I want to get it right, thanks again for the help

Where it's mets the bow patches that are part of the boat, on the original patch it was laid over the top of the other patch, I see this a weak point would it be better to cut the patch I am putting on so it sits flush and not over lapping.

If it was me I would sit it flush... Less edges for the water to catch..

Yes , that's what I was thinking and wondered if this was why it had come unstuck in the first place. Thanks for the reply
