Hypalon treatment?

Hi guys, just a quick one...

I'm using TFR tomorrow to clean the tubes up, is there anything I can buy locally such as 303 to use after as a hypalon treatment? - Halfords/Tesco?

If I had planned better I would of ordered some Ribrevive/some sort of rubber treatment.

I don't want the tubes going dull afterwards so debaiting to put it off unless anyone can recommend anything near by.

Thanks 😎

RIBase
You can use amourall from Halfrauds, but it gets very slippery when wet (that would make a great title for a rock album&#128540 303 is the way to go.

303 aerospace or aurora polyguard are excellent protectant that will not harm the fabric. Stay way from any protectants containing petroleum products or silicone. Unfortunately there are products marketed as safe for inflatables that will harm them!!!

That has silicon in it and makes it hard to patch if ever needed. Shame as I applied it and looked amazing but took it off next day when I found out.

I have bought every Polish on market and they all suck on black tubes, but another thread that one.

Thanks,

So 303 isn't available locally?

Is the stuff from Halfords the stuff that looks great but hard to patch in future etc then?

Just to add it's orange tubes if that helps.

303 will likely need to come from online somewhere unless you have a really good chandlers locally, i've never seen it in any up here but you never know.

yes the stuff halfords (armor all) or whoever is silicon based, i would avoid it. shame as it is best finish i have ever seen on my tubes by miles.

i have got rib revive, rib shine, poly marine, hypatec, rib conditioner and ribright sitting in my shed and they range from poor to shockingly bad on black tubes, i don't know about orange though. if it helps last tango's tubes came up a treat with ribright and his are yellow, so probably okay with your orange.

i am going to order 303 myself as it is last one to try, if that doesn't shine i will need to live with it.

I have used Autoglym tyre dressing
It works well makes it shine. It is slippery and does not last forever but looks good. Apparently it's used by most boat detailers. This was recommended by my local rib repair shop.

i would suggest you do some homework on it as petroleum based/silicon products makes repairing hypalon tubes difficult as the glue has difficulty sticking apparently. ( i have no personal experience though)

search this forum for armor all (similar ingredients) and you will find some info.

it concerned me enough to remove it all within 24 hours of applying it after some google work, a few places (not forums) say don't use it, however to each their own.

it just concerned me as not a single one of the "proper" ones have silicon in them.

some info here-

Ok so after a lot of searching tonight,

are any of these any good?

Autoglym Vinyl and rubber care
Autoglym tyre protect
Turtle wax nano tyre gel?

I can get some 303 of Amazon delivered on Sunday so may just await that but There are a few variations? Which one is it exactly?

RIBase
Same stuff, one is ml (millilitres) the other is oz (fluid ounces)
When it arrives check the size. The ml is a smaller bottle, I ordered a 16oz bottle which is larger & more expensive, when it arrived it was the smaller ml bottle. I contacted the supplier & they tried to play daft, yeah! That worked😏 I eventually got a refund for the difference. The stuff is brilliant especially on black tubes (dubrus&#128077 I went on to buy a gallon container of the stuff.
