Toluene before glue. Hair dryer/heat gun to reactivate. NRS has a good hypalon how to video on their website.

I found toluene by the gallon at a local paint store.

Couldn't you also use Methyl Ethyl Ketone (MEK, much more readily available at hardware stores) instead of Toluene, or is that just a PVC thing?

DRE in Wheat Ridge (Sweet Ridge!!!) has it, but it's an arm and a leg.

My gloves broke (guessing from age) and now I am having a noticeable reaction on a small portion of one hand. Nasty shit. Off to the doc but mostly to see if any meds will help if it flares up during upcoming trip.

Good reminder to keep your PPE up to date as much as the glues and solvents.

I am curious....for repair kits and those that use Clifton and the accelerator you carry some sort of measuring device to make it precise as the directions require? I never have and its neither do my buddies. Trying to find one that will fit in the ammo can now as the information on the accelerator emphasizes the the precision needed for it to be a benefit instead of detriment.

I have also found it at marine/boat stores.

When I bout my first raft I could not find it either. I did some research and tried Xylene as a substitute. It worked great. I would still try to find Toluene.

As for the accelerant, if you cant measure accurately, less is more.
