More than a raft — Orca CSM raft — There are countless reasons for choosing an YouAre inflatable as either your perfected Air Track or ultimate raft, but there are just as many reasons for choosing an YouAre inflatable as your primary pleasure island.
Quality and the Best acceptable price
At YouAre, we are obsessed with quality. We can’t imagine doing business any other way. That is why we refuse to settle for average or substandard materials, or to sacrifice hand-craftsmanship for the speed of mechanized assembly lines. We believe that exceptional quality can only be achieved by combining the finest materials with an unflagging attention to detail. When you buy an YouAre inflatable, you can rest assured that you are buying an air- and water(c)raft that is unrivaled in the industry. All hand crafted and made to our exact specifications by leading industry professional by the best acceptable factory price!
Hypalon (CSM) air mattresses/rafts
YouAre inflatable air mattresses and sea rafts are unequalled in the industry. They are constructed from a 5-ply Orca Chlorosulfonated Polyethylene (CSM) coated fabric that is specifically manufactured to resist scratches and UV damage, while retaining its remarkable durability. This fabric is not only superior in quality, just as our seams are overlapped a full inch and reinforced by taping on the inside to garuantee the maximum strength as well. Our rounded air mattresses corners require meticulous craftsmanship, and are perhaps costly to produce, though unmatched by our competitors.
To no surprise CSM inflatable air mattresses cost more then the Heytex GmbH en Mehler GmbH materials to build (Hypalon is labor intensive, since all gluing parts must be sanded as it must be cold glued by hand), but we think you’ll agree that the increased performance and comfort they provide are well worth it.
The main brand of Hypalon (CSM) coated fabric used in inflatable boats is produced by: Orca CSM by Pennel & Flipo
— 5 layer material — 1 CSM exterior layer, 1 Neoprene, 1 fabric, 2 Neoprene
Construction of Orca (csm) Coated Fabric
- External (csm) Layer:
Hypalon (CSM) coating for fabric is perfect for inflatable boats and rafts because it has a high UV tolerance (which means it doesn't harden when left out in the sun), it is resistant to chemicals (which means no big deal if you spill fuel or oil in your boat, or on your raft), it is easy to repair (which means you can apply a patch while in the field if necessary), also since it has good abrasion resistance (which means you are less likely to get holes when beaching your boat/raft).
Comparison: Beside everything it sounds (and it is) like carbon to fiberglass
Tip and reminder: At YouAre, we are obsessed with quality. We can’t imagine doing business any other way. When you buy an YouAre inflatable, you can rest assured that you are buying an air- and water(c)raft that is unrivaled in the industry.
The nautical-world standards:
You buy a Fiat if you buy Korean PVC DWF;
You buy a Volkswagen if you buy Heytex PVC; and...
You buy a Mercedes if you buy Orca CSM Hypalon!

We believe our focus on quality deliverables is what took us to where we are now. All our Searaft & Air Track mattresses and projects go through different layers of quality checks, making sure that the final deliverable is spotless!

Further HEYtex® HEYtrax spacer fabrics versus CSM Hypalon comparison...
Almost all inflatable rafts -and even boats nowadays; are constructed with either cutting edge and revolutionary renewed PVC or as we strongly recommand the Military strenght CSM/Hypalon fabric. Hypalon was discontinued by its manufacturer (DuPont) and is now sold under its slightly different formula and new name "CSM" or Chlorosulfonated Polyethylene Rubber.
Though also note that the YouAre more simplified lake- and swimming raft as a more afforadble option is also offered and made with PVC (Heytex GmbH* and Mehler GmbH, Mehler-Valmex® PVC from Germany, also not to be compaired to Korean PVC with all it's disadvantages and weaknesses); While the true military top standards from Penel&Flipo (Orca) material designrs, Orca® CSM (Hypalon) from Belgium offers the best possible solution!
Each and only these meantioned real quality fabrics has their advantages and disadvantages. Both fabrics could be considered when making your selection, though we already know which one to advice exactly as well: Let us explain in more detail.
|First of all, each of the real top quality, revolutionary materials, are also and both needs to be UV resistance, Anti-chemical, Anti-bacteria, Anti-Mildew and as well as excellent airtight, isolation Ability and safety, having much market competitiveness, etc.
All our YouAre inflatable Platforms Docks and/or Pontoons are delibertly handmade in Europe as well - Only this way the right quality fabrics from each inflatable YouAre platforms are meticulously hand crafted and made to our exact specifications by leading industry professional; Trendy, Eye for detail, plus compliant with the European Community regulation on Chemicals - REACh no. 1907/2006 (Registration, Evaluation and Authorisation of Chemicals), etc.
|Which brings us once again to the cuting edge YouAre Penel & Flipo (Orca) quality platforms, like our Orca® CR /CR dropstitch and Orca® CSM hypalon is also known for its outstanding Military strength and durability and are also handmade to the highest standards.
Even if you would still choose the Heytex GmbH* and Mehler GmbH, Mehler-Valmex® PVC option from Germany you need to start thinking about adding extra reinforcements / a double layer of Hypalon material for instance to protect against wear and tear from the ladder when using a Borika base system to connect a ladder, or electric outboard* ...towards also other layers to strengthen the bottom, sides, all in all to also prevent to get holes when beaching your YouAre boat- or raft.
*) Ps. Best option for an electric outboard less than 500W power.
Best one for a outstanding good price is the Gibsun SML 48; it is also very good for salt water (very important)
Even though the ORCA CSM nautical platform is double work with drop-stitch calibration and also double work with gluing even the extra line to be symmetric (with one line aside it looks funny) plus taping on the inside; you should know, that the CSM platform production time in general is double time compared to PVC since we have to sand all gluing parts as well (plus in our situation with the reinforced taping on the inside even 4x sides of fabrics for each gluing connection) and it takes more time to glue since the glue is totally different.
This is also the exact reason why any other PVC fabric is known to be significantly less expensive then CSM.
PVC is also quite strong and can come in different thicknesses such as .09mm & 1.2mm, but this still does not change the fact that it does not repel the sunlight as great as CSM. It can definitely be kept in great shape and might perhaps last just as long if well maintained and if no leaks are caused by stones or sharp shells on shore; no fuel or oil is spilled, you didn't forget to stow away instead of letting the raft left in the sun for a very long time, e.g.
PVC Pros & Cons
Pro: Significantly less expensive
Con: Not as UV resistant
CSM on the other hand is more expensive overall to be handeled as well but will last much longer and is excellent against sun exposure & tolerant on fuel spills or fumes. CSM is simply longer lasting, more expensive during the manufacturing process though has a high tolerance through a variety of environments or different weather as well.
CSM (Hypalon) Pros & Cons
Pro: Excellent chemical resistance and stability against UV-rays
Con: More expensive than PVC (100% to 150% more expensive)
In general PVC fabric won't last as long as CSM fabric if the raft- or boat will be subjected to prolonged periods of direct sunlight and no measures have been taken to protect the PVC fabric from the sun (raft-; boat cover or UV Protectant). In many ways these fabrics are very similar: modern technology and improvements of PVC are minimizing the difference. The most important differences are : TEMPERATURE RESISTANCE. It makes CSM very preferable in hot climate areas. PVC is also very useful there, but you have to be more careful to your raft. In medium and cold climate areas this difference is much smaller. PVC is more sensitive to UV radiation than CSM. But now the special chemical additives in PVC have nearly solved the problem on that particular area, you still will be way better off with the right choise for materials in the right environment.
