This is NOT the time to wonder about your repair.
LDPE or HDPE?
The difference between LDPE (low density polyethylene) and HDPE (high density polyethylene) is the length of the molecule chains. HDPE has longer molecular chains than LDPE and the melting temperature of HDPE is often higher than that of LDPE.
LDPE's lower melting temperature usually makes using it as filler rod easier-to-use than welding HDPE filler rod to HDPE plastics.
HDPE is also "tougher" and more abrasion resistant than LDPE, but the practical difference is minimal when doing repair work. If you need the best wear characteristics and can live with making slower, more difficult welds, use HDPE rod. In most cases, we see better quality welds when using LDPE rod for typical crack or hole repair on boat hulls and ATV plastics.

I wanted to take this time to thank everyone at Polyvance for all that they do! I live near a beautiful pond and have not been able to fish certain areas due to the size. I came across a free canoe from a friend but it had some nice size holes on the bottom of it. I ran some Google searches and the promising research I discovered brought me to Polyvance. I emailed my concern to Polyvance and not only was the answer "YES we can fix that" but the response time was within hours. The customer service and product is top notch! I wish more companies conducted business the way Polyvance does. Thanks again for the great service! My free canoe has brought me joy and many great catches!

Here is a temporary repair that one of our customers sent in....
"I have a rather humorous story about my vain attempt to repair a canoe...and some pictures from the mess I made trying to remove my latest patch job: tar backed aluminum roof flashing.
"We, for the past 3 years, have tried everything...yes everything conceivable in the form of adhesive, epoxy and tape to fix this old boat.
"Actually duct tape (our first attempt) worked the best of them all but due to the size of the hole we were covering it just wouldn't last.
"Epoxies won't stick, not even J.B. weld. And riveted patches always leak and snag on rocks.
"Last year, in a last ditch desperate attempt to get the thing in the creek again, I applied a layer of tar backed aluminum roof flashing to the keel.
"It worked for about 1 mile and then began to leak.
"Finally I contacted Coleman and asked their advice, so I am now ready to fix the thing right...well, not quite...I now have to remove the freaking tar!
"I got out my trusty grinder with a cup brush and slung the crap everywhere, before realizing it wasn't removing jack crud, just smearing it and slinging it all over my legs and patio cover. So I went and got some turpentine which is pretty useless on 1/8" thick tar.
"Finally I got out my Wagner Heat Gun and melted it and scraped it.
"These pictures are AFTER 2 hours of work. It looks like I have another couple hours left...But at least I know what to do now...
"Feel free to use this email and pictures on your website, and some complimentary orange filler rod would be nice too :)"
