New Vinyl for Stage?

Hello there,

I've got a black vinyl stage that's recently been scratched - I'm wondering if anyone here has dealt with replacing a vinyl floor for a stage and/or has knowledge of how to repair such a scratch

Judging from the pics linked above does this look like a case where you'd have to pull the whole vinyl up, replace the wood boards below, and then re-vinyl? Or is there a better way to simply smear out these crracks and scratches with heat or something similar?

 

Any help is greatly appreciated - also, any questions please fire away. Even if you think the floor doesn't need repairing I'd like your opinion!

 

Cheers

Back in the 70's when Vinyl was commonplace for furnitureand car seats there was a product called 'Vinylweld' which was basically a solvent which liquidised the cut and it flowed back together. I've only ever known it used once for this, but on a patterned floor and of course the pattern flowed into the repair. It will still show but there won't be a big gash.

Commercial building with vinyl floors, such as toilets, wet rooms etc have joins made with a filler piece which comes in the form of a monofilament (looks like 6mm2 trirated wire) but I've never seen it applied.

 

This isn't an area of expertese for me so I'll be interested in others advise.

When they laid our permenant floor they welded it with the above. The tool was like an old fashioned mega soldering/tacking iron.

The device had a shoe and store of filler and was run along the gap

Actually, thinking about it, a couple of years later someone managed to damage the subfloor and a repair was done where they inserted a couple of square metres in the centre and welded the patchhttps://m.youtube.com/watch?v=DHdeKLbHMLA

With yours, I'd have though camouflage was a better bet unless you want the whole lot replaced

Thanks for the responses everyone - good advice here. That video seems like the sort of thing that could help, rather than replacing the whole vinyl.

 

I've also thought maybe sanding down the dodgy bits and re-buffing could work - I will certainly contact the above mentioned staging companies to see if they can offer some advice.
