post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

Hi I'm new here and I'm from Slovakia so my english isn't perfect(if you find some mistakes tell me).I'm sorry that I created a new thread so I called it more universal.On one of my ski(Salomon equipe) unsticked the upper laminate layer and after skiing is there lot of snow inside.I want to stick it again but I don't know which typy of glue will be ok.I think about epoxide because it creates flexible joint but I'm not sure.Thanks for every help.

Use 2 part epoxy.  Clamp it and let it dry overnight.  If it is up the tip (or turned up tail) you can drill a small hole and add a sheet metal screw to help hold it together (grind down the point sticking out the other side).  A rivot would be even better than a sheet metal screw.

I would just add, use the longest set time epoxy you can find, at least 45 minute, as it is more flexible.

 

also, they make small, flush profile nut with pointed prongs that bite into the base, that pulls the delam together from both surfaces. you could use one or two.

You had trouble because it was not spelled correctly. It is rivEt.

 

riv·et  (ribreve.gifvprime.gifibreve.gift)

A headed pin or bolt of metal used for uniting two or more pieces by passing the shank through a hole in each piece and then beating or pressing down the plain end so as to make a second head

 

Well know examples of rivets are on vintage Levi jeans. before82.JPG

That is called a T-Nut

Thanks guys.But it is really necessarily?If I only stick it together it'll unstick again if it's near the tip?But if I put there those t-nuts or rivets I'll have to drill quite a big hole to the base..and fill it again with P-tex..I don't know.Will it be fixed?

Really necessary? no.

 

Use a rivet or don't use a rivet as you like.    It is really necessary that you use Clamps, clamps, and more clamps, as many as you can possibly get in there.

 

Think of it this way: there is a reason the ski delaminated in the first place and the original glue may not be holding very well.

You don't need p-tex or wax that far up your tip over the screw or rivet.  Several models of skis come with rivets there already.

Heck, since in the early 70s Fischer had some models with a big hole there!  The screw or rivet will not affect the ski glide performance at all.
