Sail-World.com : New range of composite battens from New Zealand manufacturer C-Tech
New range of composite battens from New Zealand manufacturer C-Tech

C-T PlateBattens are a new range of solid composite battens designed to complement and extend the existing CT Sailbattens range.

Whereas the hollow, tapered CT Sailbattens are suitable for yachts from 45ft up to the largest of superyachts, C-T PlateBattens have been designed to allow yachts from 12ft up to 90ft to take advantage of C-Tech’s sail batten technology.

After rigorous testing we are confident C-T PlateBattens represent the quality, reliability and performance of their larger cousins, CT Sailbattens.

Full Length C-T PlateBattens are made from quality prepreg carbon fibre with a carbon cloth outer layer. Battens are available in stock lengths from 1500mm to 4000mm long, while longer battens can be made to order.

Leech C-T PlateBattens are made from a blend of prepreg carbon fibre and prepreg s-glass. S-glass near the tip provides flexible, durable leech battens with the right bend characteristics. Battens are available in stock lengths from 1500mm to 3500mm long.

The taper in C-T PlateBattens is built into the laminate. The unique laminate allows C-T PlateBattens to have continuous layers of fulllength fibres on the outer surface. Battens do not require sanding or grinding to produce the required bend characteristics, and there are no short fibre layers that can cause the outer surface to delaminate.

Boat using PlateBattens include skiffs and racing dinghies (mainsail), multihulls, racing yachts and cruisers looking for more performance

Size of yachts using C-T PlateBattens
- Full Length: for yachts 12ft – 50ft
- Jib Leech: for yachts 20ft – 70ft
- Main Flutter (leech): for yachts 40ft – 90ft

C-T PlateBattens can be purchased directly from C-Tech Ltd and are available not only to sailmakers but to end-users.
