Gluing pvc

Post by mike on Thu 18 Aug 2011, 5:20 pm

This topic always seams to get varied answers i was surfing around the net and found this,i know nothing about it but emailed a question about bonding pvc and got the following answer

Dear Mike,



HH-66 is an excellent product for bonding vinyl fabrics, in fact most fabrics, but especially good with vinyls. It would be a superb product for doing your repairs. I really believe that there is no better product available.



I have been using HH-66 for repairing Marquee fabrics (which are identical to lorry side curtains) for over 10 years as I have never found a product that even comes close to being as good. This year we started importing HH-66 from the manufacturer in the USA ourselves as it’s virtually impossible to source in the UK. However we have to take a bulk shipment which is more than we require so I decided to sell it online to recoup some costs.



With regard to HH-66, there is no preparation needed at all. It bonds fabrics in the same way as heat sealing. It is a contact adhesive and needs to be applied to both surfaces. If you apply it to one surface first and then let it go off, then apply to the other surface and bond, the seal is virtually permanent.

Chatting to the guy that does my pvc work he never uses adhesives now only stitching or heat but his advice if you where using a contact adhesive was to sand the area on both pieces then apply the contact adhesive a very thin application let both pieces dry completely then re apply as per recommended by the manufactures,his reasoning was you have given the first application a better chance of sticking to the pvc and the adhesive will then be sticking to itself.
Will try this when i renew some velcro.

Sticky velcro is a pain, some stuff sticks great and other stuff comes off, think I will try something like this next time.

We use contact adhesive for sticking on PVC skirtings in the flooring trade. It is used the same way you describe Mike, don't know if its the same stuff.

F Ball Stycobond F60.

To put our velcro on we used impact tape Helen. Its similar stuff to above but on a roll.

I have been trying to stick some velcro on the pvc of the Dandy to give the awning a better fit around the bed area but it always comes away when we unstick the velcro and ends up with both hook and loop stuck together on the awning bit:roll:

The HH-66 is specifically vinyl adhesive. Velcro is an evo stick job or one of the options outlined by Phoenix.

ahhh, I've just realised why there is a huge tube of evostick contact adhesive in the drawer of the Dandy. If the last owner used it on the velcro, it hasn't done a brill job to say the least.

Have to admit I went for the cheap option on some stick on velcro and bought it off ebay, that was to put at the bottom of the door for a small skirt. I then went and bought some from the camping shops (rather expensive) but it did stay on.

The problem I have had and my daughter was getting it to stick to the pvc and not the solid part of the trailer

We seem to have got a little off topic but still in the sticking to pvc area lol!

We have used tenacious tape for small reapirs to our old trailer cover and it worked okay for a few years.

I have repaired this tear with tenacious tape at the moment.
But a lady who repairs awnings locally, suggested sticking a patch over the tear both sides and she will sew round the patch.

I think I'd go for gluing a patch over rather than sewing, I remember someone saying they had a problem with water seepage through the stitching holes when done on pvc.

If I remember correctly it was Mike with his old delta awning

I didnt get it wet enough times before selling it but the guy that did the sewing said it would stop leaking after a couple of soakings.

Hi Helen, The lady said that she would put something over the stitching to seal the holes, but if this hh66 is as good as the website says you would not need to stitch around the patch, any idea where you can get it from in the uk?
Will have to do a search on the the net. Pete

Dont want to sound like Jeremy Clarkson but with that adhesive you should be able to fit insulation and make a pvc porch awning HOW DIFFICULT CAN IT BE lol!
