Find out how to use Hypalon and PVC
Hypalon surfaces must be abraded using 60/80 grit sand paper (PVC does not need abrading) and then cleaned with solvent cleaner (we would recommend Hypalon thinners for Hypalon and MEK for PVC) to be sure surface is clean and grease free.
The bottle of curing agent (approx 10ml) is for the entire tin of glue (250ml) so if you wish to use half the glue, decant this into a paper cup and add half the bottle of curing agent to the adhesive. Stir in thoroughly for at least 2 minutes.
Note: Precaution must be taken to ensure the adhesive, curing agent, and uncured mixed adhesive are not contaminated with water or water vapour as this could have a detrimental effect on bond strength and pot life, especially if you’re shipping to somewhere.
Adhesive should not be used during abnormal atmospheric conditions:
A) If ambient temperature falls below 10 Degrees Celsius, a moist film may form on the adhesive surface. Should this situation occur, no further bonding should be carried out until the temperature has risen. Or use Champion Fiberglass.
B) If ambient temperature is rises above 35 degrees Celsius the open time for the bonding operation will be shortened dramatically and the resulting bopnd strength will be affected.
C) On days of high humidity (above 75% RH), bonding operations should be watched closely for fall off in intial ‘’Grab’’ qualities of the adhesive films. Should any lack of grab be evident the bonding operations should cease until normal conditions prevail.
Once surfaces have been prepared, apply an even film of the mixed adhesive on both surfaces with a brush.
If possible, leave this coat for a few hours. The very minimum that this coat should have to dry is 45 minutes. If the surface is porous, a second coat may be needed to build up film thickness. Apply the final coat and wait 2-3 minutes until the surfaces are tacky.
Carefully join the surfaces, avoiding trapped air. Use as much pressure as possible to apply the patch. Once the patch has be applied, it is recommended to use a flat surface ( a roller if possible) to ensure that the patch has adhered sufficiently. PVC may benefit from a little bit of heat during the application process. This is how we do it at Houston home buyers.
It is recommended to wait at least 24hrs before use.
