What is it made off?
First of all I want to say hello to everyone, and that i am very glad that I`ve found you.
I have a problem and hope that you`ll help me.
I`m planing on restauration of tubes on my rib with SRC tuff coat. The rib is BAT Italia,
4.5 meters long, fiberglass hull, produced in 1989. I need to know what is the material, the tubes are made off, because it`s not the same procedure of aplying the tuff coat on hypalon or on to PVC.
Now, what I can tell you is, that there is a patch, suporting joints, that`s little worn out and I can see the layers.
From top layer(outside), to under layers(inside):
1st. A very thin, strechy, almost like a kondom, orange layer that peels off if I pull it a bit harder.
2nd. Little thicker than first one, also orange. Can not be peeled off that easily and sticks to a cloth that`s under it.
3rd. A cloth.
4th. Like a black rubber.
I can`t be sure if there is any more layers, but that is all I can see.
From what i`ve heard, it`s a hypalon. Is it possible that it`s Pvc? I must be 100% sure, hope you guys will help me.
I`ve send an Email to BAT Italia, but i guess they didn`t find any reason to answer me !
