Coated polyester fabric protects rafts and inflatable kayaks

August 1st, 2008 / By: / Marine, New Products

0808_PS5Problem: Commercial whitewater rafting exposes materials to extreme conditions: rock and sand abrasion, daily use, high UV light, constant high pressures and tensions. Manufacturers of rafts and inflatable kayaks want a premium material that performs better than existing PVC boats.

Solution: The new generation Hypalon® coated polyester fabric benefits from new technology for bonding the elastomer directly to the polyester substrate without the need of an inside neoprene sheet. The result: significantly less adhesion loss, meaning fewer repairs. Hypalon is highly abrasion resistant, colorfast and available in both 1,000- and 1,500-denier substrates and 59- and 72-inch widths.
