Hexcel Volan 8.7 oz x 38″ (96.5 cm)

Hexcel Volan  7520 8.7 oz/yd² x 38″ (295 gm/m²) x 96.5 cm wide).   Ahhh, Volan. Treatment for surfboards as they used to be!  We only used two treatments (finishes) in the old days – silane or this partly chrome volan. Chromium treatments were dangerous and have been banned, but Volan carries on somehow! Give a great retro green finish (the chrome salts refraction) to mals and retro boards, and is tough and bullet proof. (well, nearly). Give the board a patch to make it look really authentic. This original weight cloth was also known as boat cloth – it was always used for boats building back then. Sold per metre or enter in multiples of 114 metres for the cheaper roll rate. See more below…

This is a mid-weight Volan – try the 10 oz for a traditional laminate. Its weight (8.7 oz) means it must be trimmed, not free-lapped like usual cloths, but the trim enhances the retro look and pin-lining is usually required for best effect.
