PVC and Urethane compatibility?

Does anyone know if you can glue PVC patches to a Urethane craft? I have a number of unused AIRE PVC D-ring patches and was wondering if I could glue these to a NRS Bandit Kayak (Urethane) for the installation of thigh straps? If so what is the recommended gule? Clifton? Aquaseal? same glue technique as gluing PVC to PVC? Thanks for any input...

you can glue your pvc patches to your urethane ducky. If i were to do it i would use stabond. I would scuff up the urethane, MEK both the pvc and the urethane then glue immediately. wait til it dries, second coat, let it tack and stick.

Hey Zach, can you do the opposite? Urethane to PVC? Just curious.

You can glue anything to anything with stabond. I've also been sucessfull with hypalon to urethane 2006 repairs still hold air.

Anything to anything? So I can glue NRS hypalon or Pennel OrcaŽ handles to my PVC boat?

stabond 2 part and PVC patching material is the standard to repair Maravia boats.

Yes and no. I'd use Stabond on the PVC part and Clifton Hypalon glue on the Pennel Orca.
