Our inflatable boats and RiBs are all manufactured with hand-laid seams being rather labour intensive. Each seam is strengthened with four layers of bonded fabric for maximum strength and durability. EXCEL seams are virtually indestructible and will not delaminate even after many years of use in any weather although some care must be exercised in long term exposure to Ultra Violet Light. All seams are quadruple overlap for better protection as shown here:
Four layer reinforced seams
Outside PVC layers offers:
Extreme condition resistance
Polyester Weave Fabric with 5 layer PVC laminate.
Abrasion resistance: The chemical formula of the outside PVC layer makes the material abrasive resistant and airtight properties: 200*170 N/5cm(Â± 20)
Chemical resistance: Strong resistance to Hydrocarbon, Sunlight, Seawater, Oil and Fuel. Due to these properties which protect the material from fading and ageing.
Extreme condition resistance: Low & High temperature resistance: -30 + 70°C
Dimensional stability: 1% (24hrs-70Â°C) Tensile and tear strength: 3800*3550 (Â± 250)
