RuptureSeal™ Marine Test Results
RuptureSeal™ Marine was designed to effectively seal through-hull punctures from either the inside or the outside of the hull of a watercraft.
We were recently asked a question by one of our customers, our friends at Landfall Navigation. Would RuptureSeal™ Marine be effective in maintaining air pressure in the pontoon of a rigid inflatable boat.
An intriguing question and fortunately Jason Champagne at SeaMasters in Dartmouth NS Canada, who repairs rigid inflatables, offered to do a test. Jason and his colleague Simon Yip used the product in a repair to an RIB that came in to SeaMasters.
Here’s what Jason said about the test.
Good afternoon Karl, We did some tests on your product with a Zodiac and it works fairly well. There is a small leak that comes out through where the wire tie pull is but it enabled us to keep half of the pressure in the Zodiac for at least 2 hrs. (1.5) psi was the pressure. I am truly surprised that it worked but pleased with the results. Hope that this helps you a bit?
Yes, thanks Jason, this certainly does help.
This means that if you use RuptureSeal™ Marine in a puncture or gash on an RIB you will likely be able to get back to safe harbor since the air pressure will be maintained at a functional level for about two hours.
Thanks Jason and Simon, much appreciated.
