Does anybody know if any other manufacturer uses the same siliconised cloth that Apco uses for its wing construction

I have had a hard time in the past finding "rubberized" polyester which makes me think that Apco and early Ozone wings may have used Nylon ripstop instead of polyester because the nylon-silicone materials are common.
(maybe polyester and silicone don't bond well?... I have however seen old Ozone wings delaminate eventually)

Nylon is stronger than polyester but degrades quicker in UV but the combination is reasonably common.
