Hand glued seam Vs. Heat welded seam
There are two methods to construct inflatable boat , cold glued by hand and heat welded by machine . Usually the pvc boat can be glued by hand and also can be heat welded by machine . Hypalon boat only can be glued by hand . It is for the reason of the different features of pvc and hypalon themselves .
Both of the two methods have their different advantages , hand glued seam use glue as solvent to make four layers overlapped . It require the workers have excellent skills . It is easy to repair if have damages after many years later .
Heat welded seam is permanent, it is use the heat machine to melt the pvc fabric directly , and reduce the risk of air leaking problem of the tube . It is widely used in current inflatable boat factories . It also require skill workers to operate the heat machine reach the right temperature to make the seam straightly and strong .
