CL SOLID SINCE 2001.
Carbo-Link specializes in the design, engineering and production of solid carbon rigging. The first CL SOLID rigging cables sailed across the globe in 2001 and are now on-board yachts from 50ft to 70m+.
The marine industry is an exciting and growing market for Carbo-Link. The confidence in and subsequent uptake of innovative carbon fibre solutions continues to outpace many traditional industries, providing a platform for constant improvements in performance, reliability and cost efficiencies.
CL SOLID rigging is available in: CL ROUND | CL ELLIPSE | CL HYBRID | CL TORQUE
ISO 9001 | AS9100D AEROSPACE & DEFENCE | GL CERTIFIED.
HOW CL SOLID IS MADE.
Custom made titanium fittings are CNC machined in-house based on break load requirements
Optimized raw carbon fibres are impregnated with Carbo-Link’s unique toughened resin system in-house
Optimized number of carbon prepreg layers are continuously wound around the end fittings forming a full loop - no joins for any cables, straight or continuous laterals - to meet exact stiffness demands
The cable/s are consolidated with automated winding machines into round cables, or shaped into elliptical profiles
The cable/s are then either part-cured or fully-cured in a jig replicating spar geometry before coiling and delivery
Final curing occurs onsite with Carbo-Link’s unique and Aerospace certified curing process
CL SOLID rigging is then yours to enjoy, knowing it requires no further transport or servicing off-site
