PVC is a thermoplastic while Hypalon Neoprene is a synthetic rubber.

PVC is a plastic material, easily industrialized with a low product cost, but it also has some disadvantages compared to ORCA Hypalon.

It is true that Hypalon is slightly more expensive than PVC because of its raw material, but in the long run, this difference is important.

The advantages of PVC are :

- Price
- The weight

The advantages of the Hypalon neoprene ORCA :

- UV resistance
- Longevity (a hypalon float can last up to 25 years when well maintained)
- Resistance to extreme temperatures, ideal for tropical areas
- Resistance to bending, impact, friction and abrasion
- Easy to repair thanks to the material and the cold gluing
- The resistance to hydrocarbons

- Resale price The disadvantages of PVC are :

- UV sensitivity and aging
- More difficult to repair
- Not recommended for intensive use
- Resale price

The disadvantages of Hypalon are :

- Weight
- Purchase price

If you want a boat that can be easily repaired, is more resistant to the elements and maintains a strong resale price, the choice of Hypalon is to be favored.
The Hypalon can last for many years if it is well maintained with ORCA products (New magic / Shmuffex / Gumemp100).

The main criterion for choosing your fabric is the length of your inflatable boat, but it is also preferable to use the same quality as the original fabric (your dealer will be able to help you).

Our range of neoprene fabrics is composed of 4 qualities of products, designed for different lengths of RIB boats.

In our online shop, you can buy our products by the linear meter (100x145cm), within the limit of 15 linear meters per reference, which is sufficient for use by a private individual or for repairers.

If you wish to place a larger order of fabric or if you are a professional (e.g. a float builder), please contact us directly at

Orca Retail is proud to offer you a wide range of 36 colors and finishes (Carbon / Beaded / Fabric Impression / Matt / Honeycomb / and Smooth) for our line of neoprene repair fabrics to allow you to repair and restyle your tire to your liking.
