Contender Sailcloth Black Aramid Racing ZZ
A top choice in racing laminates is the ZigZag Black Aramid Laminate from Contender. It is popular from club through international levels. It is constructed with ZigZag yarn to produce a sail with radial panels that have superior strength.
By adapting suggestions from yachtsmen and sailmakers, Contender developed a sophisticated fiber for efficient support and distribution of loads over radial panels. Since this layout reduces the load on the Mylar film, the sail will retain its shape for longer periods. You will find it has good flex and has improved UV resistance.More information from Contender Sailcloth
UV Resistance and Flex Durability
Full Technora along with UV absorber in the adhesive assures excellent UV resistance and flex durability.
The ZZ 04 and ZZ 06 styles are based on a Technora formed scrim combined with Technora ZigZag technology for off-angle support. All Technora fiber construction of the ZZ 04 and ZZ 06 combined with our UV absorber in the adhesive assures excellent UV resistance and flex durability.
The ZZ 09, ZZ 15, and ZZ 18 styles all step up to the higher modulus Twaron black warp fibers for added performance in these radial laminates while still using the Technora black for the fill. Designed for radial applications the ZZ styles from 06 to 18 all have 750 denier Technora at 12˚ off the warp.
