I see it's not allowed in the EU after June 2015 and only sold for professional use so in my books that shows how good it is !

thanks for posting those pdfs, Gordy. As a long term user of SC2000, I've been curious about its replacement by SC4000, but none of the "end of the supply chain" vendors seemed to know anything about the change.

I had supposed it was due to toxicity issues, but seems that ozone depletion was the driving force. I guess I am happy to learn that there were no hidden hazards of great note, since I'd never used respiratory protection while patching old dinghies on the beach!

Cheers,

Jim

Re: Adhesive to reglue dinghy tube to aluminum hull

Hi, everyone. I own a dinghy repair business (locations in Arapahoe, NC and Sebastian, FL). I'm BEGGING you not to use 5200 on your tubes! That crap is the scourge of my existence! It is nearly impossible to remove without damaging your fabric. I believe the initial poster was describing detachment of a hull to tube strip. In a case like that, the area needs to be cleaned, prepped, and revulcanized. Primer is also necessary for an aluminum hull. Ya can't just shove stuff in there, and expect great results. DIYers never fail to make my Wall of Shame portion of my presentation at the Oriental Boat Show. Thankfully, at least one of you advised against listening to YouTubers. Hallelujah! If you have questions, please call me BEFORE making a mess of your boat. 252-571-0421. Check out offshorerafting.com, or visit me at Offshore Rafting on Facebook. Although these "taxis" are less expensive than the big boat, they're still a hefty investment.

Re: Adhesive to reglue dinghy tube to aluminum hull

A patch over a slow leak will need 24 hours of cure time. Larger gashes, newly reattached rubrails, transom fabric, and large accessories will need about 3 days of cure time. All repairs should be performed in a climate controlled environment with fresh adhesive. DIYers never follow these hard and fast rules, which is why I'm always tasked with fixing their mistakes.

Please don't ever use 5200 on your tubes. The damage it does to the fabric is often catastrophic.
