The 65mm wide Basalt Carbon woven unidirectional tape consist of a plain weave construction with at least 80% of the fabric weight in the 0° or Warp direction. The breakdown of the design of the tape from outside in:
Direct Size E- glass fibreglass 20% stronger than normal 4oz surfboard glass
Basalt - Stronger than S-glass with good vibration dampening properties
Carbon - Known for its properties of strength, rigidity and lightness
It can be used on your surfboard to add directional stability in one specific direction. A perfect replacement for a full carbon tape for reinforcing surfboard rails in the tail area, it generally flexes more than a full carbon tape so it will complement the natural performance of the board. The design of this tape is to reduce fractures around where the tape meets the fibreglass.
It also can be used as a strong and responsive stringer along the bottom of a stringer less EPS blank. This can reduce chatter as Basalt has a dampening property. Buy it now!
