Rubber Repair Instructions
To complete the repair you will need –
Adhesive masking tape scissors pencil course sand paper small paint brush mixing pot acetone clean rag hot air gun or hair dryer spoon
- Cut patch to appropriate size and round off corners. The patch should cover the hole by at least 25mm in every direction
- Use a pencil to trace the patch on the surface of the boat
- Tape around the outside of the pencil line using masking tape
- Roughen all surfaces well with sand paper (You need to take the shine of the boat and the patch material)
- Clean all surfaces with acetone or MEK
- Mix the hardener to the adhesive. Apply a thin coat to the boat and the patch
- Leave the adhesive for 30 minutes and then apply a second coat of adhesive
- Wait 2-3 minutes until the glue becomes tacky to touch
- Carefully apply the patch and rub into position with any hard item. (A spoon or spatula is a good option)
- Remove the masking tape and clean any excess with acetone or MEK
- You should not attempt to repair the boat in direct sunlight or in humid conditions
- For best results leave the boat deflated for 24hrs you could partially inflate the boat after 3 hours in an emergency
- We recommend the boat be inspected professionally if the cut is larger than 60mm or structurally affected
