The latest Seabase reinforced by Hexcel range of surfboard cloths have changed surfboard lamination with its 100% clean, quality fibreglass finished with a new unique range of technically advanced finishes that attract and absorb resins far more effectively, making lighter, stronger and less brittle surfboard laminates. Used world-wide the Seabase by Hexcel range of premium surfboard fabrics are guaranteed to be clean and clear in all production, and are optically matched to the new range of Seabase Marine QS 10M surfboard resins – part of the Seabase range of marine resins.
Way back in the 70’s the move away from greenish fibreglass surfboards was gathering momentum. Using volan and silane treated cloths and very basic polyester boat resins meant surfboards weren’t “white” or clean looking, and they certainly didn’t look new as the resin aged quickly and became even more brittle. Dents became cracks which browned and wicked water. In the late 70’s Seabase developed a range of fibreglass cloths with Hexcel in France and optically matched the fibreglass finish with the new resins to produce popular surfboard resins still used widely in Europe today.
