Material Identification - Brig F300

I purchased a used Brig F300 for a tender. It has a small leak that I need to repair, but I'm not sure what material it has. I read that Brig come in either Hypalon or PVC and read somewhere that they glue their PVC, so the seams aren't melted. I believe it's a 2004. I read that PVC usually has a strip over the seam, which mine does. It has approximately a 2" wide piece of material over all the seams. I'm leading toward PVC, but I was hoping someone can help identify it.

Thank you!

If you can't tell then I'd take it to someone in the know to be on the safe side, pop over to you're local inflatable store.

Most of the smaller BRIGs come in PVC as standard but hypalon is optional for some models, so it can be either.

I emailed BRIG direct and they replied in a couple hours, which was nice. They said if the model number has an H after it, it's Hypalon. Mine is an F300 with no H, so it looks like I have PVC.

Thank you!
