Yes it is Hypalon, probably made by Henshaws who are considered to be one of the best.
It would be easier to say which other manufacturers don't use hypalon!

Thanks for the help, I am after a used 10-15 year old 5m rib, I went into my local rib repair shop today and they said don't touch a pvc rib at this age and get a hypalon one. do you agree with this?

In a word yes.
Ribtec 5.35's are cracking little boats too.
