At Powerplast we think that not going forward means going backwards.
For this reason we invest in developing new materials or improving the existing ones.
We use the best material available on the market, without compromise, reliability is our first goal, and we know that reliability is what our customers are looking for.
Thousands of sails made so far have received complete satisfaction, from those sails that have rounded Cape Horn to those that regularly sail on the weekend. We put the same care into the production of sails for large catamarans and those for small boat such as Meteor, every sail is important for us and the same underlying technology is used to give to all our customers the same outstanding result, customised to their needs.
Powerplast raw materials have been carefully tested and used exclusively in the nautical industry. Quality and reliability of material are essential features, so we choose the best materials available without worrying about their cost.
The material available for the outer skin follows
UV blocking film
Film thickness can be chosen among 12 19 and 23 micron, (0,5 0,75 ans 1 mil) according to boat size, wind range and weight.
Where UV rays are stronger and cause degradation, UV blocking film is the right choice. We have produced many sets of sails for Farr30 boats racing in the Tour dArabie, facing the desert weather without any problem.
