Title: Teach me about HANK/Hypalon
Post by: skinth_solutions on October 31, 2018, 05:22:03 PM
Did some searching and didn't actually come up with much info.

Any you HANK/Hypalon gurus here? AFAIK, HANK can be cut with a laser (which is am interested in) and is quite robust.

Help?

Sorry for the late reply. I just want to know what it is, what's composition is like, where are it's applications.

I've seen some zipper pulls and some MOLLE ladders.

Just curious.

Simplified; it's a rubber coated nylon fabric.  Applications are numerous from what you listed to gaskets to high wear components and more.
