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.

Here are some images and explanations of the test that took place.

Thanks Jason and Simon, much appreciated.

Safe boating.
