WIND-PREG™ represents the state of the art in mast construction. The essence of this top notch mast range lies in two concepts:
filament winding and Pre-preg.
We merged two of the best manufacturing techniques in a single product thanks to the collaboration
with the leading carbon fiber supplier worldwide.
The construction process follows the following steps on every single mast from 60% Carbon models upward:
Goals achieved using WIND-PREG™:
What we offer to the customer:
* Subject to registration within 30 days from original purchase.
** To be purchased separately filling in the form available on our web-site.
We have been forced to develop this new technology ourselves, as no other conventional mast manufacturer in the world was able to achieve our requirements in terms of durability.
JAPANESE PRE-PREG: For our masts, we exclusively use the latest Japanese pre-preg carbon fiber, the best in the world. This allows us to ensure not only the best performances, thanks to extremely accurate and constant technical values, but also the best quality thanks to almost absent manufacturing and material flaws.
AEROSPACE MATRIX: the carbon fiber we use to develop our masts is impregnated using Epoxy Matrix resins coming from the Aerospace Industry. Thanks to these state-of-the-art materials we can build a more performing mast, increasing durability and reducing weights.
TITANIUM REINFORCE: on the most sensible areas of our masts we have introduced real titanium filament to increase the durability of the product. This is a special fabric made exclusively to Powerex.
UST - (Ultra Stratification Technology): for our carbon/glass fiber hybrid masts we developed the exclusive Ultra Stratification technology (UST). Thanks to this innovative procedure, the layers of pre-preg carbon and glass epoxy fibers are pre-matched electronically in order to ensure that the final sandwich is free of imperfections.
BAMBOO EVOLUTION SHIELD: this is the real pinnacle of our new mast line: a real bamboo foil melted together with carbon. The advantage is that the bamboo foil has a shock absorbing effect against any hurt or scratch. Bamboo foil also reduces sensibly mast temperature under extreme sun exposure. The foil is also pre-treated to be completely water-proof.
BOOM PROTECTION: All our masts have a special protection around the boom area. This protection prevents the typical abrasions that occur with all the most common boom front. There are two kinds of protection: the "gold and polymer" shield that is available in our RDM 85 and SDM FREE 80 % masts and the "carbon and polymer" shield available in all the other mats.
AUTOCLAVE CONSISTENCY: This process, available only to very few companies, involves the curing of the carbon in a high pressure chamber. The high pressure literally shoots tiny air bubbles and impurities out of the mast giving as a result a perfect carbon body.
ASJ AERO SANDING JOINT: During this exclusive process, all the mast joints are sanded electronically and with the maximum accuracy by means of an air-pressure machine. The final joint surface has a smooth hone that will prevent the mast sections to get stuck while using.
PPJ (Powerex Performance Joint): When joining the top and bottom sections of your mast, this revolutionary technology helps you to find the perfect alignment between the two elements, allowing you to get the best performance out of your mast. The PPJ is applied during the manufacturing process while measuring the spine of the mast. This procedure makes sure that on joint section you will have the maximum reflex ratio.
100% QUALITY ASSURANCE: All our masts are electronically tested before leaving the factory. Tests include bending curve control on our patented mast bending machine and crash-test to ensure that all our reference parameters are respected.
100% CERTIFIED MATERIAL: We impose to our supplier to buy only certified materials. These materials might be up to a 10% more expensive than the standard but ensure a higher level of quality reflected on the finished product.
Ultra stiff travel mast bag: It is a brand new mast bag concept that will completely and safely protect your mast during travel. It is made of Hard PVC and Cordura fabric. We have designed this mast bag from scratch, being really fussy on zipper quality and weight ratio.
MONOCOQUE BOOM we took the best from the technology on our masts an applied also on the boom. Here we have ONLY MONOCOQUE construction.
