The 'Aluminium' Hull Explained
One of the first advantages of aluminium boat hulls is their weight. The weight of the hull is a major issue for smaller boats. Aluminium boat hulls are considerably lighter than steel. Therefore, these hulls can be made as strong as a steel hull but weigh considerably less. This will also allow you to carry heavier cargo on the boat.
Another advantage of aluminium boat hulls deals with speed. Since these hulls are lighter, they will allow the boat to have more speed. Fuel consumption is also greatly reduced.
One of the next advantages of aluminium boat hulls is that they're easier to make. Aluminium is easier and faster to weld than steel. Aluminium is also very easy to shape, so aluminium boat hulls can have more detailing than other types.
Aluminium boat hulls are also very easy to repair if they become damaged. If you dent the hull of your boat, you can usually pound it out with a hammer. If this won't work, the area can be cut out with a saw and replaced easily.
One of the final advantages of aluminium boat hulls is their durability. Aluminium boat hulls will stand up to impacts much better than steel or fiberglass varieties. These hulls will also resist corrosion in saltwater unlike steel.
Hypalon Material Sirocco RIB Fibreglass Hulls inflatable tubes are made from French Pennel ORCA® 820 Hypalon; the toughest Hypalon available world wide.
Hypalon is a synthetic rubber; it is an extremely resistant material.
Ultra violet light resistance
Thanks to the exceptional characteristics of ORCA® Hypalon outer layer which protects from ageing and UV.
Thanks to its rubber base, ORCA® Hypalon products retain all of their properties even when accidentally exposed to heat.
The combination of a high tenacity fabric and an outstanding coating, gives ORCA® Hypalon a very high level of mechanical resistance.
The chemical formula of the Chlorosulfonated Polyethylene (CSM) layer makes ORCA® Hypalon very resistant to abrasion.
Thanks to its outstanding quality and performance, ORCA® Hypalon is highly recommended for antipollution barriers and oil recovery barges.
Extreme condition resistance
Intended for the leisure, professional or military markets, meet the highest requirements for safe navigation in the most extreme conditions.
Its flexibility permits an easy manufacturing and nice curves and cores.
Its ability to easily be glued with Neoprene glues.
Seam ConstructionOur seams are overlapped a full inch and reinforced with seam tape both inside and out.
No one else takes so many steps to insure seams will last.
This absolutely ensures maximum strength and durability.
