A step forward: a new and greener option

Recycled material XRP Cruise is a high-end laminate, where the main parts of the material are made from recycled polyester, that is the UV-protective film, the taffeta, and the polyester fibers. The combination of black polyester fibers and white taffeta makes up for a greyish look. The XRP cruise comes in 3 qualities where the heaviest is further stabilized with UPE virgin fibers. Be one of the firsts to get your hands on this exciting new material. We are thrilled to be able to offer yet another EKKO option, the XRP cruise laminate. The test we have made on a Dehler 38SQ in cooperation with our German colleagues were very persuasive. The material is used for tri-optimal layouts and in our testing, it proved to be very form stable, with no optical difference to other laminates made from virgin material.

Competitive alternative

Elvstrøm Sails has a range of other high-end polyester laminates in the portfolio today but with the new addition we are now able to offer the cruising customer an eco-friendlier choice, and even at the same price level as comparable laminates. “We hope that the fact, that you do not really have to consider the price issue on this one, will make the decision to go for the more sustainable version very easy”, Flemming Christensen explains.
