The floats fabric is made of polyester support inside coated with Neoprene and outside coated with CSM.
This fabric is labeled ORCA 1670 decitex. Hand-made assembly and double cold glue vulcanization by high skilled workforce are performed. An additional strip is glued at the edge of each panel junction as well as a strip inside all assembled parts in order to ensure a perfect watertight quality preventing from any leakage. The outer CSM coating is an elastomer resistant to heat and abrasion in opposition to the fabrics coated with plastomer (PVC).
Thus, Sillinger uses fabrics of very strong resistance to extremely high or low temperatures.

The hull is made of gel coat and ISO resin stratified with mat and rowing and biaxial fiberglass. Transom and deck are reinforced with CTBX marine plywood core and lamination. Crossing stainless steel beams also strengthen the hull. The deck is self-draining and anti-slip.

The 580 RIB UM has been primarily designed as an intervention boat and is already in use by a number of customers including nations in the Gulf of Guinea where it plays a key role to protect oil rigs and fight against illegal immigration and druck trafficking.

It is also in use by the French Navy commandos in Lorient as well as the French Customs, both units have already expressed some interest in aquiring additional 580 RIB UM.
