Benefits of Product

Products are made with Polyurethane: it’s tougher, stronger, weight savings, longer-lasting, better looking and it has a cleaner production. It provides superior abrasion resistance, puncture resistance, U/V resistance, and tear-strength, as measured against competition.

  • Improved Bonding Process
  • Improved Repairability
  • Urethane coated fabric tubes can save weight while increasing strength, simplify supply problems concerning repair adhesives, allow quicker repairs and reduce potential health issues during manufacture
  • Wing polyurethane has twice the puncture resistance and four times greater abrasion resistance than Hypalon.
  • Expected service life of a polyurethane tube is 7-8 years versus only five years for a Hypalon tube.
  • Our air-holding seams are permanently thermo-welded, not glued.
  • Wing’s proprietary CAD software factors material strength and stretch into the patterning of each boat.
  • Typically fast 60-day turnaround on new or replacement sponsons.
  • Tube design can reduce weight and increase usable space.
  • Wing designs result in optimum speed, handling and fuel economy.
  • Wing polyurethane products are Buy American Act and Berry Amendment compliant.
