I plan to do some TLC on my Hyperlon RIB. The webbing straps have rotted away I'm about to replace them & need some really good glue to fasten the new straps.
Appreciate any recommendations and hints, from those who have gone before.

I have used them all...and the really good ones really work in the perfect world...
I found regular old contact cement to work fine on my Avons for the last 35 years...that patches may start to curl up after several years...but I have seen the same with the really good glues too. So spending a fortune on glue that still depends on the cleanliness of the fabric as well as your preparation...only to last "maybe" longer than a decent contact cement patch...I could never justify it.
My personal experience has been that many of these hypalon glues have a short shelf life, sometimes only a year. I know a raft outfitter who throws all his hypalon glues away every year and buys new glue yearly for his raft rentals. I don't think you want them to ever freeze and if using them in a hot humid climate the glues need an accelerator added so the set up faster. These glues are really a type of contact cement.
