How the canoes are built
Structured in layers: High quality marine 2K paint | Unidirectional prepreg carbon
Unidirectional Prepreg carbon fiber fabric is a type of carbon reinforcement that is non-woven and features all fibers running in a single, parallel direction. It is pre impregnated with resin in an computer controlled process. With this style of fabric, there are no gaps between fibers, and those fibers lay flat. There is no cross-section weave that divides the fiber strength in half with another direction. This allows for the concentrated density of fibers that provide maximum longitudinal tensile potential—greater than any other weave of fabric.
High density PVC Foam is used for the core between the carbon layers. It provides stiffness and durability in a lightweight Sandwich structure. It’s closed-cell structure that makes it impervious to water.
High quality 2K Marine Paint provides 100% UV protection and superior scratch and chemical resistance
All products are designed, engineered and manufactured using the latest computer software and machinery to ensure 100% accuracy in the tooling and later on the canoes.
All material are pre cut by a computer controlled cutting machine.
After the lamination the molds are vacuum-bagged and placed in the autoclaves, using 3 times atmospheric pressure and heat to cure the canoes. This gives a superior bonding between the layers resulting in a light, strong and reliable construction .
