vinyl etc

Hi funny this came up today, I was just doing test laminations with a variety of commercial spray glues (my usual commercial contact for laminates, Wilsonart for Foam and delicates, Titebond Super Strength.

All adhered well in average lay up time (shop was abit cold today) but I brought them home to cure tonight before doing a peel test.

The layup I did was fabric backed premium vinyl to high density foam (3/4") On brief observation it seemed to me the original toxic as hell good old fashioned stick mica to anything glue was better adhered to the foam but we will see for sure after the peel test tomorrow....hope this helps.....incidentally all layups were spray both materials dry to tack then rolled contact with typical rubber laminate roller.

LarryandSusanMacDonald Thanks for the link. So far there have been 17 hits from this link. My chest (or maybe my head) kind of swells up when something I've written about gets noticed.

CarpeAquam I'm planning something similar. I'm not sure the best way, but found this interesting: The Frugal Mariner: Insulating your boat

Beersmith I ripped all of mine out. Was falling apart, moldy and was stapled on like yours.

I am replacing it all with panels so they can be removable to access wiring and deck fittings.

If you are "pulling it down" this seems to imply that you are talking about the "overhead". It can confuse folks because some boats had the the cloth-backed vinyl on both ceilings and the overhead...
'Most any good upholstery stop can source the material, and there are 'net sources also.

Taken care of, that tough stuff can last the life of the boat. If leaks are ignored or the interior is allowed to remain damp, there will be mold problems.

Oaksail Contact cement is your best bet. I did the same thing to my CS30, not because of mold but because of rips. 2 years later and still holding strong.
