How to repair PVC boat ?
PVC Inflatables that have tubes constructed with PVC coated fabrics require PVC adhesive (MAX 5550). Please use recommended solvent and adhesive.(In this case Toluene solvent is recommended)
1). Identify the area to be patched.
This can be done by running water over the suspect area or spraying or brushing with detergent in water.
2).If the hole is small, cut out a round patch of no less than 60mm diameter. Larger holes or cuts will require proportionate larger patches but please ensure you have at least 30mm of patch around the perimeter of the cut or hole and the corners are well radiused.
3). Hold the patch on the tube and mark out around it.
4).Clean both surfaces with solvent and apply a thin layer of adhesive on both surfaces of cuts and new patch .
When the first layer is dry (about 10 to 15 minutes, not sticky anymore) , please apply a second thin layer. After 5 or 6 minutes, touch the adhesive with the back of your hand. If it is not sticky anymore, heat both areas with a hot air gun to re-activate the glue and glue the patch to the tube and then clamp or roll the surfaces together. For the best adhesion, roll over the patch with a 3/16th width roller or over the bottom edge of a bottle.
5). Do not inflate the boat within 24 hours.
6). For large tears or cuts a polyurethane adhesive should be used and is best applied by a professional repairer.
