I have a supplier of raw rubber like materials and they can provide the raw materials in strips cut to requested width strips.
Reading the spec I think possible candidates would be EPDM, nitrile, or hard neoprene. They all come in black and can be cut in strips from 3/16" - 1/4" thickness. This is for my new 5.4 searider. I'm just exploring around. I'm not sure I really need to reclad the tubes with new strake but if it'll work I might be tempted to look into it.
the link for
Hard neoprene: http://www.rubbercal.com/Hard_Neoprene.html
Anyways I suspect rubbing strake couldn't be made of something too space age. I guess the hope was that it would be similar to one of these three.
Might anyone have an answer to this one? Would they glue to hypalon with the 2 part glues? THanks.
