This video from Blue Planet shows you how to re-glue a deck pad that is coming off using contact cement, painters tape and rubber gloves.
1) tape around edge of deckpad to keep glue off the board
2) apply a thin layer of contact cement to both sides, be careful, let first coat dry
3) apply a second thin coat and let dry for 12-15 minutes (set timer)
4) when glue is dry to touch, firmly press deckpad down
5) peel off tape, done
A great video demonstrating how to re-glue your deck pad on hard SUPs. Don’t use super glue and make sure you fix things the proper way.
Cool Video, I actually replaced my deck pad from the JL destroyer instead of re-glue it because they are fairly slippery compared to other brands. These destroyer boards are quite good to be fair but the deck pad isn’t, that’s the only disadvantage that I had with this board. I used an FCS rear foot traction pad and FCS Dimples tole that did the job. I have now 2 JL Destroyers 7’7 @100 liters and 8’0 @115 liters, with quite a good grip now.
Yeah having good grip really makes a difference
Never use contact cement to re-glue a pad! Use the much better modern MS Polymer glues!
See the comment I made on the Youtube Video.
Thanks Colas we will take a look.
Well… it seems BluePlanet has deleted my comment on their video 🙁 So I recopy it here: Never use contact cement to re-glue a pad! Use the much better modern MS Polymer glues! – They do not have solvents in them. Contact cements work via a solvent that dissolves (i.e. damages) the board surface to provide adhesion, hence the need to let the solvent dry and apply to both the pad and the board. – They cure (like resins) with humidity, no need to have the surfaces perfectly dry. They are an evolution of the PU glues such as gorilla… Read more »
Thanks we will look into it.
