HOOD sailcloth is renowned for its quality and performance.
HOOD Vektron™ sailcloth incorporates fill Vectran® yarns giving performance equivalent to laminates but with superior durability and longevity.
In 1995, HOOD launched Vektron™ sailcloth, a breakthrough in sailcloth technology, utilizing Vectran® fiber to weave a higher strength, lighter weight woven fabric with superior durability and longevity. Vectran® is the trade name of CNA, a liquid crystal polymer fiber which is underwoven with super high tenacity polyester.
Because Vektron sailcloth is fully woven, it is not subject to the delamination and handling problems inherent in laminate construction. It also does not suffer from the mildew and mold problem associated with Laminated sails. Since 1995, this unique product has gone from strength to strength, having supplied yachts worldwide from 25′ to 146′.
