A Versatile Range of Top Quality Cloth
The Fibercon® label guarantees your quality.
A Unique Label
Fibercon® sailcloth is woven with our exclusive Fibercon® high tenacity yarn.
Why Do We Spin our Own Polyester High Tenacity Yarn?
The production of polyester fibers has increasingly been outsourced to low cost countries where spinning companies no longer produce fibers to the quality and specifications necessary for weaving superior sailcloth. The trading name of these fibers has remained the same but the actual performance of the fibers has degraded dramatically. As the leader in premium woven sailcloth, Contender has always realised that the fiber used in our cloth is as important as the weave and finish. We have always been in control of the weave and finish and now we have taken control over the quality of the fiber as well.
High Tenacity Yarn
High tenacity means high breaking strength and low stretch.
UV Resistant Yarn
UV radiation from sunlight can break down polyester fibers. We added UV blockers to the Fibercon® polymer so when you select Fibercon® sailcloth you are getting the highest UV resistance available in any sailcloth.
Fibercon® Yarn Available in a Wide Range of Sizes
The selection of fibers for their size is an important aspect of determining the sailcloth’s properties relative to weight and balance. Fibercon® fibers are spun in a wide range of sizes engineered to construct a complete series of premium styles.
