Any inflatable boat is only as good as its fabric. For over 40 years Achilles has been setting the standard for inflatable boat fabric using our customized formula combining tough and airtight elastomer coatings over a heavy duty Nylon or Polyester core fabric. Today, Achilles Fabric continues to set the standard by using an exterior coating of chlorosulphonated polyethylene, or CSM, for its unsurpassed durability and two interior layers of chloroprene for its remarkable air tightness. With so many fabric claims made by inflatable boat manufacturers, it is important to recognize that Achilles Fabric has been proven where it counts most - on the water. Many types of fabric have come and gone under many different names, but none have ever been proven more effective than Achilles Fabric. Trust your next inflatable boat to the proven name in fabric reliability, durability and toughness - Achilles.
