Hypalon Adhesive Query

I'm about to add a few more wear patches to the tops of my tubes....Want to offer them as much protection as possible from dive gear...twinsets seem to be the biggest culprit!

Henshaws have been excellent as usual and have priced me up some to match my existing ones...and I'm keen to go ahead.

However, the cost of carriage (becasue of the adhesive) is REALLY expensive....does anyone know of anywhere (Brad, you might be able to help here) which sells adhesive near to me / for collection....the guy who is going to ad the patches is Chris in Pembroke Dock, but he has asked that I get hold of the adhesive.....is that because it's not readily available locally?

Any steers appreciated....failing that will begin a ring around on Monday....

Dan

We have an arrangement with our carrier that if we ship in “limited quantity” there is no hazardous charge. If you order on our web site it will be shipped in a way that it will only cost you the standard delivery rate.

Have in the past ordered some other marine stuff from UK, and added 250 ml of 2 comp polymarine glue. No additional shipping fees for such a quantity in this case, but that might be dependent on the carrier. Think also have seen on some UK web site a comment about 250 ml as a "trigger" quantity, but not 100% sure.

I'm probably going to get shot down in flames for this, but.......

When I added the wear patches to my tubes I was worried by the expense of buying so much Hypalon glue and catalyst. Because the glue is only there to keep them in place, and is not structural at all, I did some tests with some Wickes own brand (evo-stick like) contact adhesive. As it seamed to work OK I used it to put the patches down. I did however prepare the surfaces well by cleaning, keying etc.
I did put a thread up about it somewhere.

They are still on there two/three years later, although the boat doesn't get anywhere near as much use as yours, and does have an all over cover.

Obviously I'd not consider using it for anything other than wear patches, but I do consider it a viable alternative for them.

Whilst I don't recommend it above proper glue, I've successfully used sikaflex in the past.

The dive shop you use may supply it for you it is the same stuff they used to make and repair neoprene dive suits.
plus they will sell the tolene cleaner as well.

Any dive shop looking after Viking drysuits will stock it as it is exactly the same stuff with Hypalon and the Viking drysuit material being rubber based.
