Repair leaking PVC inflatable mattress (shit in China)

And if they were repairing rather than throwing and change? Rediscover the pleasure of the repairs yourself. How to diagnose a problem or find spare parts? Repair itself is way to save money generally!

Repair leaking PVC inflatable mattress (shit in China)




by Christophe » 08/03/11, 23:12

Raah, I have my slap, it's made the Nieme inflatable mattress that I use as an extra mattress (inside I specify) and which only takes 2 or 3 uses before having a leak ...

On one, I tried a bike patch but the polymerization is not done correctly (see not at all, normal it is the same material as an inner tube) ... so if the leak is reduced, it is still there...

Short: would anyone know of a reliable method of repairing this kind of mattress (PVC)?

Inflatable mattress 1 or 2 places with or without "velor" coating on one side, material not sure but a priori it would be PVC, usable in water for some ...

ps: on the decatlhon site I found it at 3 € but it seems a little light right?

Uh if it's just PVC glue: PVC pipe glue (pressure, evacuation ...) that stings the nose with its solvents (+ or - strong depending on the brand) wouldn't it work?

reps: a priori these mattresses were not used for sexual performance .... (well, I don't think so ...) ...

And to say that I have 50 year old inflatable mattresses still good !!
Not Chinese at the time of Mao !!
Try neoprene glue, not guaranteed ?????
This kind of plastic is hot glued too ????
Normally you have to make holes with thorns there ??
Unless the collages are bad ???

Puncture-proof bombs. To be reused at each inflation. Will quickly return more expensive than the mattress itself! : Lol:

In general they start to flee at the welds. And there it is dead. Otherwise the patch glued to the pipe glue does it ... Neoprene too ... But it always ends up taking off again ...

I prefer to sleep on top and even on the clay or the grass I have not burst ...

I have never been able to reliably repair this type of mattress.

It must be said that they are practical, comfortable and space-saving.
If we had to do them with the same technique as the old ones, they would weigh heavy and occupy at least 3 times the volume they have.

Concerning the glue of swimming pools, I never tried on a mattress but it is a good idea because on a swimming pool I tried it and even a leak at the level of a weld it held a little, it was necessary to put back some time in time because under pressure the adhesive expands and the weld continues to cut.

Ok thank you for the feedback ... so that's what I feared: it's not won !!

To start, I will try the patch solution + PVC glue ... because I have the gear on hand.

Christophe, you should make a thread on your "Merde in China", it is necessary. We buy Chinese because it is the cheapest but we would also like it to be of quality .... : Shock:

If we make a normal mattress, made by people who are paid normally, we end up with a product that has become "luxury", with a very high price, for the rich. And what do righteous people say? They say it's theft and that these products shouldn't exist, we don't want them .... You should know.

Example: Are 600 € shoes theft?
