Applying the Patch:Step 1 - Thoroughly clean the board surface and the PVC patches with acetone. Repeat a few times waiting 5 minutes between each cleaning.Step 2 - Apply a thin layer of PVC glue to the patch and board surface. Spread evenly. Wait 3-5 minutes for the glue to become tacky. Step 3 - Heat glue on board surface and patch for 10-30 seconds with heat gun or hair dryer so that the PVC warmed. Step 4 - After the final 5 minute wait, press the patch to the board surface evenly. You will want to have the area to be patched lying as flat as possible. Step 5 - Apply pressure starting from the patch center and working your way outward. This can be done with the back of a spoon. Then work your way around the edge of the patch too. Step 6 - Wipe off any excess glue with acetone. Step 7 - Attach masking tape to area to keep patch in place while glue sets. Step 8 - Put something heavy on top of the patch while the glue sets for at least 24 hours. Step 9 - After 24 hours, remove heavy object and masking tape and your board should be good to use!
