Introduction of Dimension Polyant Lite Skin for crosscut use

SailSelect is proud to introduce a new Lite Skin® range of fabrics suited for crosscut sail assembly. Crosscut sails have less seams, reduced fabric waste and a traditional appearance. The addition of Dimension-Polyant Lite Skin® outer layers protects the film, reduces film shrink overtime, offers less water absorption than a traditional taffeta and provides increased chafe protection from film only laminates. The external layer is coated with UVt®, DP’s proprietary UV and anti-microbial finish to increase UV protection while deterring mildew growth. The Lite and Medium weights are 100% polyester and the Heavy version steps up to a aramid scrim for reduced material stretch..
