Force Inflatable Dinghy- Hypalon or PVC??

I have a small Force inflatable dinghy, it has a tear and I need to patch it but I don't know if it's Hypalon or PVC and I can't find any info on the Net about Force dinghy's. They are made in New Zealand. Maybe they don't make them anymore, I can't find a website for them.

Anyone know this dinghy? PVC or Hypalon? it's about 10 years old I think.

Thanks in advance!

Steve

There's a brand called Waves inflatables which has a line called Force4 in Australia. Could that be the brand? If so....they are all PVC.

PVC is generally 'slicker' feeling than hypalon, which has a more rubbery feel to it.
