Fabrics with an attractive coating of Hypalon are weather and water resistant, rugged and yet are lightweight and easy to handle. All these qualities make it perfect for use on inflatable boats. Colorful coated fabrics made with Hypalon are used for hatch and boat covers, radomes, inflated structures, and are ideal for quality awnings, boating garb, convertible tops and other consumer products.
Hypalon® has been used for over 40 years in many diverse synthetic rubber applications because of its broad assortment of valuable properties. Whether it is used as a protective coating for fabrics, hose and tubing in automobiles, or single ply roofing, Hypalon fabric will effectively resist abrasion, chemicals and the weather to last longer than other materials. Hypalon was originally formulated by Dupont and is now used in the manufacture of many other products. Hypalon coated fabrics are widely acknowledged as the longest lasting material for use in the manufacturer of RIB Collars and Tubes and are a Chlorosulfonated Polyethylene (CSM) / Polychloroprene (CR) material.
