Dacron High Aspect 7.3 oz. 54″ is a High Mass Fiber Weave, by Challenge. These High Mass Fiber Weaves are a tight weave construction of tough yarns for sails on boats that see a lot of use. Weight for weight these weaves have larger warp yarns on both surfaces. Warp yarns resist abrasion, tear, UV and general use better than smaller yarns. The warp count is higher than the fill count, with the warp yarns almost exclusively exposed to the sun. This high aspect sailcloth has been immersed in a bath of suspended resin for a stabilized finish.
High Mass Fiber Weave is designed for durable cruising sails and is preferred by sailors who log many miles and charter boats owners. Ideal for mainsails and jibs on boats to 31 feet, #1 genoas on boats to 48 feet, light #1’s up to 55 feet and #2’s to 36 feet.
