Hypalon repair question

I've got a NRS Otter that has an area on the bottom of the self bailing floor that is worn down to the scrim. It also leaks a bit of air from this spot causing the floor to go soft in about 30 minutes. The worn area is about 1 inch diameter.

I know the drill for patching over intact hypalon coated areas, but I'm not sure what special steps are needed when patching over scrim, especially involving an air leak, as now I've got to get this airtight with a well adhered patch to the fabric core rather than rubber. Do conventional patching methods work on scrim?

I've searched the forum but didn't seem to find much on this particular issue.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

I would do a coat or two extra on the scrim to build it up a little. The glue will soak into the scrim a little more than it would the rubber so an extra layer or two would be best. Multiple thin coats are better than thick ones. Not sure what glue you are using but Stabond bonds excellent to scrim.

Thanks for the reply. I was planning on using Clifton with the catalyst added.
