Better glue than others for raft repair.

I am fixing up my 1998 14 ft hyside. I am wondering if there is a better glue to use that will really stay on like it's part of the boat? Also does gorilla glue have anything out that maybe comparable?

Thanks. I was using something else. I've had a hard time with the patches staying on when they get beat on by the desert sun.

Shore adhesive is good for Hypalon; StaBond is better

The most important aspect is the freshness of the glue- should be less than a year old, and not stored below freezing

I've had problems with patches pealing using both of these glues. I quit having any problems once I switched to using Cliftons Hypalon two part adhesive from NRS. Like Randy suggests, save yourself some headaches and go with the good stuff. Make sure you prep it right. The NRS website has full instructions. Good luck.

Hypalon Glue

We recommend Stabond for our boats. Here's some instructions on our website for gluing a patch. We have a ton of info under our "Tips" section for caring and repairing your HYSIDE. You can always give us a ring as well with any questions.

https://hyside.com/hyside-owners-manual/#instruct

We mail out these glue instructions with every glue purchase or repair kit.

THANKS!

Assuming the prep is done correctly, Stabond and Clifton are both excellent glues.

I used Stabond on my Hyside back in 2002 or '03, when I got it, to put on more d-rings. Followed Hyside's instructions. No problem with them since then.
