Wear Patch Problem

I have a 10 year old Avon 560 with Orange tubes and Black wear patches, problem is that the "black" seems to come off on your clothes, or when you wash the boat which is a real pain. The patches are still black but so is everything else as well! - any ideas?

Using Rib Revive followed by the conditioner helps stop the black rubbing off on clothing, But this is only a temporary measure we have replaced many black wear patches on Avon's with grey ones. That solves it.

I used Rib Revive and it's the best thing I've come across to clean my rib (and I've tried a few things!)

Can the wear patches be painted? Seem to remember someone painting their wear patches. Maybe with hypalon paint?

I'd rather keep the black ones if I can

Hi Stu

Are the patches Hypalon or are they a different material?

If they are hypalon you might be able to seal them with a quarry tile sealer. ( I kid you not!)

I'm pretty sure they are rubber - anyway I hate tiling / grouting at the best of times

So you think quarry tile sealer works? - I guess if it works on hypalon it should work on rubber?

If you see an orange rib with one black "granite" effect wear patch then you know it doesn't!

Any idea on the name of the product you used?

sealing the rubber patches

Sturat

I found that a good silicon based sealant does the trick.

The people that supply ribshine do a good one that is called UV Protector ( or some thing like that). It is a milk like substance Apply a few coats on a warm day and it seals the rubber.

Best of luck
