CARBON REINFORCED ZIGZAG LAMINATE WITH ENDURO FINISH FOR OFFSHORE REGATTAS
Zig Zag laminate is the reference laminate for many classes around the world. It is an excellent choice for high performance and competitive sails, from club regattas to Olympic series. Our ZZ Carbon Enduro Laminates manufactured using ZigZag technology allow for the production of exceptionally lightweight radial panel sails. Carbon brings a lot of stiffness and responsiveness to the sail, but to ensure longevity, it is important to precisely balance the Carbon/Twaron ratio within the laminate. It is the precise balance of this ratio that makes the ZZ Carbon Enduro an extremely stable and durable laminate.
Our ZZ Carbon laminate has the unique feature of having each pass of carbon wicks encapsulated between two layers of adhesive, which solves the problem of laminate fraying at the edges of the panels. The Enduro finish is a lightweight taffeta finish that combines the excellent abrasion resistance of a taffeta with the vulnerability of inexpensive but fragile non-woven finishes.
