valve glue


One of my bladder valves has been leaking. I've taken it off but haven't found a good glue to put it back on, anyone know of a good glue for bonding plastics.

thanks

Re: valve glue


I just replaced my inflate valve but I bought it from 'Kitefix'. Whatever glue that was used on the replacement valve was great! http://www.kitefix.com/catalog/index.php That probably is your best bet. I had it in 2 days.

Re: valve glue


Did you glue it? Or did you buy the whole valve and use the peel and stick.

Re: valve glue


If you ever need to glue a valve use aquaseal. It looks like shoe goo but actually cures. Don't use shoe goo.

Re: valve glue


Yeah Aquaseal is the stuff you want. I've also used the peel and stick replacement valves and supplemented with a small bead of Aquaseal. Don't think it is absolutely necessary but mine has held up well so far.

Re: valve glue


sold hundreds of tubes when I ran my windsurfing store for 10 years. great for repairing wetsuits too.
Where can I buy it town?
Used to store it in the freezer after opening to make sure it didn't dry out.

Re: valve glue


West marine said it wasn't available in canada anymore. Health concerns?

I used the Lepage flexible plastic glue and it appears to be working.

MEC carries it, if you have an order over $50 shipping is free:

Their neoprene booties and gloves are a super good value.
