Hypalon or PVC on Zodiac yatchline 420 2001

Hello

I just bought a zodiac 420 yatchline 2001.

Eventhough Iím almost sure they are made from PVC, the previous owner told me the tubes were hypalon.

From your experience, what are this tubes made of? Or how can I be sure?

Itís important because the tube reel came lose, so I have to reattach it

Thanks

Eduardo

Pretty sure it will be Strongan Duotex, basically Zodiacís own PVC. The latest models use hypalon neoprene fabric 1100 decitex.

To check, remove a valve cap. If the tube material is the same colour both sides itís PVC. If itís darker inside itís hypalon.

This link is for 2008 boat models and it was PVC. https://mymeaculpa.net/Specification...GB_KTA2008.pdf

Aloha Mexico356,

I have a 2004 4.8m MEDLINE 1 (series 14330) and it is a PVC tube. The previous owner tried to glue patches and abrasion resistant panels to it, which did not work well at all.

I just got a new tube set, which cost plenty as well as shipping to Hawaii $$$$ from DEFENCE.com which took 8 months from ordering to delivery.
