  • Inflatable Novurania '73 Hypalon Or PVC?

    Hi,

    I have an old inflatable Novurania, but I have no clue if the fabric is either Hypalon or PVC. I've read some articles that say one can see this by the way the seems look, or by the color of the inside of the types. but I like to be sure, before ruin it...

    I've attached some pictures, can someone tell from these pictures what fabric it is?

    Thanks alot!

    If the outter tube skin fabric in completely smooth as a tire bladder to touch definitely is hypalon, Italian manufacturers generally uses hypalon fabrics on their sib/rib boats, so as in new Novurania models. A pvc 38 year oldie sib simply wouldn't exist today.

                I dont know what products they used to bond the bubbles on the boats.

                You should probably start a new thread with the appropriate year.

                When I was with Nov there were no Jet drive options in production. There was a jet drive Nov built prior to my services .. but they apparently did not work to expectations .. so they dumped it.

                You should look into your inflatable repair dealership guy for re-bonding the tubes.

                Have you tried calling Nov ? .. you might get a good answer from them.
