Materials we use
We build boats from the very beginning. Especially for them, we have developed our own material based on natural rubber, which guarantees good boat durability. They are resistant to abrasion, aging and sunlight.
Material composition: outer coating based on synthetic rubber (1), anchoring layer (2), high-strength PES cloth (1 100 dTex) (3), anchoring layer (4), natural and synthetic rubber coating (5), natural and synthetic rubber coating (6), anchoring layer (7), top sheet of drop-stitch cloth (8), spacing fibres of drop-stitch cloth (9). Minimum tensile strength is 3 600/3 100 N (20 × 5 cm sample). Minimum weight is 1,270 g/m2.
Material composition: high-strength PES fabric (1) with outer synthetic rubber coating (2) and inner natural rubber blend coating (3). The material is highly resistant to abrasion, ageing and UV. Tensile strength min. 3 000/3 000 N (sample 20 × 5 cm). Minimum weight 920 g/m2
DOUBLE SIDED - NITRILON®
Material composition: high-strength PES fabric (1) with double sided synthetic rubber coating (2). The material is highly resistant to abrasion, ageing and UV. Tensile strength min. 3 000/3 000 N (sample 20 × 5 cm). Minimum weight 1 192 g/m2 .
NITRILON® - EXTRA
Material composition: high-strength PES fabric (1) with inner and outer layer of synthetic rubber (2) coating and outside NITRILON® EXTRA (3) coating.The top quality material for maximum load and for use in demanding climatic conditions. Tensile strength min. 3 000/3 000 N (sample 20 × 5 cm). Minimum weight 1 487 g/m2.
PES - PUR
Material composition: PES fabric of RIPSTOP (1) type with inner polyurethane layer (2) and Teflon water-repellent finish (3). The material is abrasion, ageing and UV radiation resistant. Minimum pull strength 1 100/900 N (specimen 20 × 5cm).
We protect nature and behave responsibly.
The manufacture Gumotex in the Czech Republic developed their own special material NITRILON® and NITRILON® Extra based on natural rubber a renewable and environmentally friendly resource. At the same time, Gumotex manufacture boats with maximum emphasis on longevity, resistance to abrasion and sunlight in order to reduce our ecological footprint as much as possible, and at the same time so that you can enjoy our exceptional kayaks, canoes or rafts for as long as possible. During production, we use the most modern technologies in perfect symbiosis with traditional manual work procedures.
The result is uncompromising quality of GUMOTEX products in harmony with a sustainable approach to the environment.
