Inflatable Fabric tenders provide great advantages over other options. Inflatables are lighter, easy to store, and require less horsepower.
Unfortunately, along with these benefits there are also downsides.
The biggest issue with inflatable fabrics is the damage from the sun’s UV rays. PVC especially has been known to be very susceptible although it is a common issue for both PVC and CSM (Hypalon). In addition CSM (Hypalon) and PVC both tend to have a lot of expansion with changes in temperature stretching the material and seams causing failures and costly repairs.
Also, abrasion and scratches can damage the fabric and leave ugly marks and soft impacts with docks and other boats can cause leaks and adhesive failures at the seams. Then there are storage issues with moisture leaving black mold spots that are difficult to remove. And finally, there is the difficulty of keeping the tender clean given the highly porous fabric material like CSM (Hypalon) or PVC.
The solution to these issues is Glidecoat Inflatable. The product uses our Smart Surface Nano Technology to fill all the microscopic pores of the fabric (either CSM or PVC) to create a smooth surface that reflects water, dirt, and salt. With respect to UV, laboratory testing shows that when Glidecoat Inflatable is applied it reduces UV damage and color loss by 45% over a 12-month period.
In addition, the Glidecoat Inflatable Hard Bottom Kit also comes with Glidecoat Marine Ceramic Coating to cover the Fiberglass bottom, thereby protecting it from marine growth.
