Hyperlon repair but not a leak

There are a couple of places on the RIB and the SIB that need the hyperlon glueing back down as opposed to patching.

Is the process the same as repairing a leak, sanding both surfaces etc - or can you buy a glue that you can squeeze into a slightly lifted section of hyperlon to "glue it back down".

The reason I ask is that the couple of areas I've noticed have only just started to lift and I'm slightly reluctant to make the repair area larger through the need to sand the area down before applying the glue - does that make sense?

Thanks again

J

Limey Linda has experience with this type of repair, as I recall. PM, maybe?

Always sand the top of the hypalon without you can not repair the fabric, the rest is the same as fixing a tire...

Ummm, I think the OP was talking about fixing delaminating fabric. Sanding the top wouldn't do much in that case.

To Knot Yet: See LL's post:

Excellent thanks JKY - that looks the business - the areas are very small - on a couple of internal seams the glue has started to come apart - I just wanted to get it back to good before it gets worse - its neither a hole or delaminated so LL looks the answer

I would gently use a hairdrier/heat gun and spayula to peel back the lifting part of the material to get at the non eroded glue. Sand down both surfaces and reglue. whilst your doing this and waiting for the glue to cure stick a clothes peg on the top part of the fix which helps to keep the two parts apart

From the pics you posted your SR seems in very god condition so a stich in time would definitely ve good.

use a bit of thinners and a kids artists paint brus to apply
