Epoxy Repair Kits
Will G-Flex adhere to Hypalon used on inflatable dinghys? Need to reattach transom to tubes.
Yes, it will adhere to Hypalon quite well. I would use it in areas that you don't need a lot of flexibility as the epoxy will give a little rigidity to the area. Always test a small spot to verify that it bonds well enough for your intended application.

Yes I would recommend this product.
I have a old town royalex canoe which I had brought to Houston for rescue efforts after hurricane Harvey. During our first night there a car rammed it and bent it in have. Having large creases on the outside and cracks on inside it was either job weld or g flex. I faired the creases out and repaired cracks which were three about ten ten inches long each. Worked great sanded out well and repainted with krylon fusion for plastic.Like new now and feel confident in its structural integrity.
