Cheap Kayaks – kayaks under $ 200

cheap kayaks can give you much pleasure. They can also stand and normal wear. Originally wooden kayaks were framed covered with animal skins. This basic form has persisted for many years with major changes veering towards a more streamlined look with different types of materials used to cover the wood or aluminum frame.

Gradually However, more innovative designs crept in and with the growth of technology driven by the introduction of a synthetic material, a spectrum much wider possibilities suddenly opened up for manufacturers of kayaks.

Why do some kayak cheaper than the other teams? The answer is that the price is almost always related to the material they are made.

The materials used to manufacture the most modern kayaks are generally those built from:

PVC (polyvinyl chloride). It is cheap, durable and easy to work. He entered the market in 1926 after Mr. Goodwin BF, a physician and industrialist who began a tire and rubber manufacturing has worked with W. Semon, an American property known inventor. Together, they have found a way to "bend" rigid PVC. This was done by combining it with different additives. PVC can be economically rotomoulded. (Rotomolding works a bit like those rides where you are whizzing around a rotating drum, starting from the bottom, you are stand up and stick to the walls – when the kayak is made, the rotomould is heated first).

Polymer is a material that is manufactured from either natural or synthetic substances. (Rubber is a natural polymer) A synthesis example is polyethylene, a mixture of ethylene – Sulfuric acid and alcohol, and the monomer – a derivative of glucose. These are all more commonly known as plastics.

Fiberglass (glass fibers extruded) as its name suggests, began to be used in commerce in 1936. Often today, the method consist of layers of fiber fabric which is enhanced by saturating them with plastic resins – called composite material. These boats are lighter than varieties of plastic.

nylon fabrics 1000 denier around (consider that the low pure ladies are about 8 denier).

Hypalon (polyethylene chlorosulfonated) – a common name for all types of synthetic rubber noted for its resistance to chemicals, extreme temperatures and light ultraviolet.

Kevlor (registered trademark) is a light, strong synthetic fiber made from aramid which are resistant to heat synthetic fibers. bulletproof vests are made from such materials. It is often cited as Kevlor is "5 times stronger than steel on an equal weight basis. Synthetics have their origins in the chemical industry. Most of them are a byproduct of the process of changing crude oil into gasoline and other related products.

The result of all this is that today Kayaks are made from cheap PVC and its derivatives.

Consider this. The Sevylor Tahiti Classic Kayak has been on the Amazon River that the class V rapids, twice. It is a distance of more than 6186 miles. The kayak is made from PVC, which has been modified to adapt in the rough and hard to paddle kayaks. This trip is a realization of the first class to the humble PVC.

Sevylor, Sea Eagle, elements Developed and all Intex kayaks under $ 200. All are air and most of them the use of PVC or related equipment.
