Watch A Boat Get Cut In Half & Put Back Together With Stormsure Adhesive [VIDEO]

Ever wondered how Stormsure Flexible Repair Adhesive would perform in an extreme scenario? Well – here’s how!

Special thanks to Imperial Fishing for carrying out this test which involved cutting an inflatable boat straight across the middle and then gluing it back together using Stormsure Flexible Repair Adhesive. This is a perfect demonstration of how our glue performs on a larger scale, so don’t miss it!

Lost Bung!

I was getting my inflatable boat towable ready for the summer (this is a large inflatable mattress that you can tow behind a speed boat) only to discover that the mice had been at it.  A couple of small holes in the PVC are going to spoil the fun.  A quick dollop of Stormsure Flexible Repair Adhesive have fixed them in no time.
Worse, however, is the fact that the bung is missing. I can inflate it with no problem, but I cannot keep the air in! The bung has an unusual thread which tapers as it goes in. I have looked on line but found nothing.

So , I have made a new bung. I used StormForm. This is a hot water mouldable polymer. It comes in granule form. I put about 25 grams in a cup and covered it with boiling water.

After a few seconds it all melts into a thick flexible plastic. Then, with my hands I have moulded this into the rough shape of a bung. Of course it did not fit, but by remelting the StormForm and screwing the bung into the hole, I have managed to make a perfect screw thread.

 

After about 10 minutes I have an airtight bung again.

Success!
