Why Use HH-66 Vinyl Cement?
There are a lot of reasons vinyl cement can come in handy. For example you may need to cover something REALLY big like say a collection of your husband’s “project cars” that are laying in Frankensteinesque pieces on the front lawn for several seasons. He’s been promising to DO something with them but so far they don’t look like they are any closer to driving away than the day they arrived. Alas, a V18 tarp won’t even begin to cover the pile. But what if you could make your tarp bigger…20 feet wide…maybe 30 feet… maybe in a forest or kelly green, like soft rolling hills in spring? Don’t despair, HH-66 to the rescue!
What is HH-66 Vinyl Cement ?
HH-66 is a clear, fast drying (3-5 minutes), waterproof, solvent-synthetic resin adhesive. It is used for bonding vinyl coated and vinyl laminated fabrics like V18, urethanes, vinyl foams and films, wood, leather, and metals. It is also fantastic for sealing and waterproofing stitched seams.
What Should I Expect When Using HH-66 Vinyl Cement?
HH-66 dries hard and very strong, yet remains flexible. It is highly resistant to oil, fuel, grease and many chemicals. It’s not affected by weather and extreme temperatures (-30 F to 180 F), can be applied at almost any temperature and it can be used in applications that are wet or even submerged in water. Thus, for bonding our V18 tarps together to make one strong and effective cover for the eyesore in the yard HH-66 is perfect. Plus, we can fix the giant tear in the kid’s collapsible pool that has seen one too many seasons and yes, the blow up dinosaur float tube that is in it as well!
How Does It Work?
Application is by brush, roller, or squeeze bottle by applying one coat to each surface. Then fuse the 2 pieces together by bonding coated surface to coated surface using roller pressure to mate the surfaces. Although the material may be bonded while wet, it’s better to let HH-66 get a little tacky by waiting 3 to 5 minutes before bonding the surfaces together. Once dried it can be reactivated to a tacky state by high heat or solvent, important if you have the coffee jitters when your fusing your V18 tarps together and need to make a few adjustments.
Where Else Could HH-66 Be Used?
Ok so maybe you don’t have a pile of junk…ehem “project” car parts in your yard and you gave the pool away last year. HH-66 Vinyl Cement has other uses you might find interesting including:
