Help! 2010 RB50 Marine Vinyl Floor Repair

So, I was moving a copier for my wife's job…..and it seems to have sustained a minor injury.

There was a sharp corner on the copier that dug into the vinyl, unfortunately ripping it. The piece is still intact and actually looks ok but obviously it needs a permanent repair. It's about 2" x 2" piece.

So, I'm looking for suggestions. Thinking adhesive to glue the piece back down would suffice. We have a rug as well that we normally use but unfortunately it wasn't in the van at the time.

Ideas?

Thanks all!

Not that I wouldn't read all tips here - as many may have "been there; done that," but you might try contacting Nautolex to see if they have a recommended procedure/glue/etc. Presuming the flooring is made by Nautolex (for some reason I feel like it is, but not sure).

Thanks for that. I couldn't find the actual floor supplier via SMB.. I'll check into it.

So that's what it's called? The stuff that comes in SMBs? I've always wondered. I wonder how expensive it is, or how hard to work with?

Thanks Viva

Eric: The "decko-dot" sample that I sent you is also made by Nautilex.....although I had no idea that the newer SMB stuff was also the same brand...

Re: Help! 2010 RB50 Marine Vinyl Floor Repair

Thanks, I didn't know that either. I really like that sample and also what you've done with it. I think it would work better for upholstery than flooring for me. I've always really like the newer SMB flooring (Nautilex, i guess) but until now I didn't know what it was.

Re: Help! 2010 RB50 Marine Vinyl Floor Repair

Well, like I said, I'm not sure. But for some reason in the back of my mind I thought the "marine vinyl" flooring was made by Nautolex. But I could be wrong. It reminds me of flooring that you often see on pontoon boats or certain runabouts.

I think the "coin" is Loncoin by Lonseal, but it's possible people just call it that sort of like saying "Kleenex" instead of facial tissue.

Any actual experience with my original post question would be appreciated.

Re: Help! 2010 RB50 Marine Vinyl Floor Repair

First clean the area to be repaired, the vinyl and the sub-floor . Warm the damaged area with a hair dryer to "soften" the vinyl . apply a small amount of vinyl floor adhesive to both the sub-floor and the vinyl. press into place , squeeze out any excess glue .wipe up any excess glue .make sure patched area is aligned correctly,then place a weight on the area until glue sets up .
