Re Painting Hypalon Inflatable

Hi all.
Last year I brought a Wetline 265. It had suffered from sun and weather damage after sitting in a harbour for a few seasons. I used it last year for two days it holds air well and has no punctures or any other damage. I want to repaint it, ''DUE TO THE WEATHER DAMAGE" (I have youtubed tutorials on re-painting). However the hypalon has dried out really bad and has lost its rubbery glossy feel due to the weather damage. Is it still paintable? using a specialists rubber paint for Hypalon of course. Or is it past its best. I can upload a vid or photos to help my enquiry if needed.

Thanksa mill... Reg

I'm pretty sure it is, I googled the difference in material between PVC and Hypalon. if you study the material up close its a woven fabric effect which suggests its hypalon (which if I'm correct has 4 layers) this is my concern with the paint its almost down to this ruff fabric feel. (suede / itchy/ ruff surface).

Thanks for your time.

Hi again, I am no expert on Wetline but I have just done a Google and the 265 AD is PVC, the 300 AD is PVC, THE 310 ad is PVC, And even the 350 RIB is PVC so I would assume PVC but I cannot be 100% but someone will be along shortly that will know for sure.

No problem, what I did was looked at suppliers (like Mailspeed Marine) and read the spec on the different boats

Thank you for confirming this Landlockpirate.... after Bartiny queried wether or not it was PVC. I done some further research and found that you could tell be the welded seems.The way they are manufactured, and as you well know it is PVC.

Thanks for all your help....However!! So further to my inquiry what paint would be suitable to get this back up to a good standard would -Seicol polygon gloss, Gibbon inks formula 1 Or the best HMG PVC 94 as suggested earlier (for hypalon)

Im a novis! so Thanks for all your help...
