there are some foams, which are quite expensive, that can be used with water areas and the water just runs thru and does not get absorbed and held so to speak, have spoken with a few upholstererereres now and getting the picture i think

I think

A manufacturer on here posted once saying they used hypalon as upholstery material instead of Vynyl......what a bloody good idea I thought.

The stitching wont rib through the hypalon after a year or two!

You want a pair of Vinyl trousers made, that way it'll stick to your Vinyl seat and you won't fall off when cornering fast.

i am going to get velcro fitted to both seat and me pants, that should do the trick

also the floor is all velcro and the shoes have the velcro too....makes walking about a bit difficult but at least you can hold your position well

Next time you see those good ladies/companies ask them if they've ever heard of Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer. That should get them going... EPDM sponge rubber (closed cell <5% water absorption)... some folks know the trade name for the thinner stuff... Neoprene? Anyone seen any water logged divers recently? ..........

aha! now we're talking. Has anyone ever found an upholstery supplier that stokes/uses this type of foam?

Stu, the hypalon idea was brought up by Mr. quinquari (?)

thanks for the info jono

I buy from a company called CMT for our use (Not upholstery related! ) Why don't you buy it and supply the upholsterer if they can't manage to find it themselves from the many suppliers out there....
I'll PM you CMT's details if you wish..but a quick "Google" might find you a local supplier...
