In boatbuilding applications, SAERTEX products help improve the energy balance of sailing yachts and motor boats. By using our fibre-reinforced composite materials, heavy metallic materials can be replaced, thereby achieving significant weight reductions and energy savings.
Our materials are utilised in the hull and deck planking, superstructures and interior mouldings of vessels. For such applications, SAERTEX supplies complete material solutions for the sandwich construction system in the area of composites, and delivers proven solutions for closed processes such as RTM. Our SAERcore special functional fabric with integrated flow enhancer is well-suited for the rapid production of straightforward superstructures. When draping the fabric over vertical areas and large curvatures of the component – for instance the hull – many of our customers favour the patented, self-adhesive SAERfix fabric, which makes this work easier. In addition to multiaxial fabrics made of glass fibres, the patented structural core material SAERfoam has become established as an excellent replacement for balsa wood components.
