Hypalon Paint?

Hi all...

I am looking for a gray hypalon paint to touch up some wear areas on my Zodiac Hurricane, and I'm wondering if anyone knows of a paint that is specifically meant for Hypalon.

My local Hurricane dealer has been experimenting with a silicone based "rubber" paint used in the movie prop business for masks and so on, but it's a little early to judge it's effectiveness.

To be clear, I am not looking for an anti-fouling paint.

THANKS!

Stoo

I'm sure someone will come along with a more knowledgeable answer but I purchased some on EBay as part of a Hypalon stencilling kit available in black or white. You'd have to mix the colours to get your shade. Hope this helps!

I once met a boatbuilder that had lived and worked in trinidad and he told me out there they painted tubes with swimming pool paint !! ,he then on his mobile phoned his collegue out there to find out for me exactly the details ,however his friend said he would phone back as he was busy battening down as there was a hurricane coming , i never heard any more and hav,nt seen the guy since ,so all i can say is what he told me "swimming pool paint " .................just in case you think i am joking ,i am not ,but i hav,nt got a clue whether its a good or bad idea as i never persued any further ,

Stoo - beware of anything silicone based going near your tubes - itís non stick properties can make future patches hard work.

Polymarine do a range of hypalon paints. Personally I'd stick to touching up the bad bits as painting seems the last gasp before a retube

Marine Shield

In my opinion, this is the best product out there.

https://marineshield.co.nz/inflatables/

It's a professional product that requires good prep and has to be sprayed

Almost the entire tube was covered with marineshield, the logo's are paint as well.

40ft Protector work boat that I converted,

Originally it has a closed transom with triple engines, after Team New Zealand was done with the boat, I bought it, remove the jack plates, cut the transom out, added a swim platform, remounted the engines, removed some weird leaning posts, installed all new Simrad system, install hyd tie bar, head and holding tank, rebuilt the bow thruster. Painted the boat, laid 1/2" solid teak deck. Just before I sold it, I made new tubes.

Kinda reinforces the statement that paint is the last step before a retube then!

The tubes were 13 years old and in really good shape, the paint protected the tubes, the buyer wanted plain grey tubes.

Isnt that the point though no one will buy a boat unless its extremely cheap with painted tubes
You spent £10k ish maybe more to retube when you could have presumably repainted grey?
Why? Because your buyer wouldnt buy with painted tubes.
I still stand by the statement that you only paint tubes to eek out the last remaining life

Thanks folks. The paint is really to touch up a panel of worn hypalon that covered the painted police name (the previous owner). I ended up just using some spray-on vinyl upholstery paint! I intend to replace these panels in the off season...

The paint looks terrible, but it has kind of a bad-ass camo blotchiness to it. I like it. :-)
