Glueing PVC to Hypalon

Can someone tell me the correct way and type of glue to use in glueing a PVC patch ( name of boat is on the patch, not being used as a repair) to a Hypalon Tube.

Thanks,
Mark

You must use pvc adhesive on the patch, 2 coats, and you must let it cure, not just dry but cure. This adhesive will form a barrier which prevents the plasticisers in the pvc migrating to the hypalon adhesive and turning it into a sticky substance.

Use normal hypalon technique for gluing.

Bostik 2402 is the adhesive that is normally used for Hypalon, and I think it's Bostik 3206 for PVC (but check!).

Hope this helps!

John

John is exactly right, I have just had to re-glue a whole rubbing strake off a Scorpion 6.5 RIB using that process........oh joy!!

PVC to Hypalon

Hi All,

I have just bought my first 2nd hand RIB. It is a 2011 Stealth 4.2 m. One of the rear pontoons has a pin hole leak and a pretty average patch job done on both pontoons. I want to fix this by cutting the rear pontoon ends off, shortening this by about 150mm and attaching a conical end.

Will this work attaching hypalon to PVC, or does it have to be PVC - PVC.

Does anyone have an opinion on this and any tips.

Thanks Andrew

Keep it simple...just patch the pin hole and enjoy boating. If the tube is PVC use PVC patch, if it's Hypalon use a Hypalon patch. No point in making a pinhole to a big project,
i don't think making /repairing cones are easy DIY jobs?

Good luck with the repair anyway.
