If you don't mind the mismatch, why give yourself unnecessary work? Apologies for hijacking your thread, btw.

It is not what a layman would consider an acid. i.e. it doesn't dissociate in water into ions including protons, with a pH <7 - as would acetic acid, hydrochloric acid etc. This is what is more accurately known as a Bronstead Acid. Your explanation that dilution effected the reaction, and it reacted with the alkali suggested that this was the "type" of acid you were referring to.

It is certainly a Lewis Acid - that is to say that cyanoacrylates can act as electron acceptors from a Lewis Base. Water can act as a Lewis base. Alkalis such as "baking soda" will in effect make water a better Lewis base.

Gluing rubbing strakes

Hi

First message on the forum.

I'm in the process of replacing the rubbing strake on my RIB, what I'm needing to know is just how roughed up do you need to rough up the tubes.

you gotta take some of the first layer of the hypalon off . Use the plastic brush as it will give you more control f you see some of the weave thats a bit to ar but a little mistake is forgiveable. do not go past the weave. you can speed matters up by doing the strake with an angle grinder.

the stuff shouf feeldry an open to the touch. if you havent got the glue and thinner I think TIDEL or RIBSHOP sell it.

I haven't got a jar of glue (cockerny rhyming slang) how you do it with superglue however
