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!

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.

No longer posting. Reach me by PM!

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