There are some important questions to ask when it comes to the decision to buy a PVC or Hypalon inflatable boat.
The benefits of Hypalon are well explained in the text below. For the commercial and professional customer in extreme conditions and hot climates, we recommend buying Hypalon. You can expect to get +10 to 15 years out of your Hypalon tubes. From a price perspective, PVC is hard to beat. If you use the boat only a few months a year and take care of it, the higher price for Hypalon is difficult to justify. Hypalon (Neoprene) offers the best UV and abrasion resistance (also resistant to chemicals and high temperatures), color stability and air tightness in addition to great flexibility and high adhesion values.
PVC offers a cost-effective advantage with inflatable technology and design. PVC is very simple and cost-effective to repair compared to Hypalon and is a very good choice for the Scandinavian market.
