Epoxy “E-Glass” Battens:
Epoxy “E-Glass” battens are constructed using unidirectional ‘E’ glass fibers in
a unique proprietary pulform process in which all fibers are pre-tensioned and
aligned during the impregnation process using our specially formulated flexible
epoxy resin matrix.
This unique manufacturing technique makes for an extremely durable, virtually
unbreakable batten that can be tapered down to .025″ less then 1mm on our custom
CNC machine, creating an extremely soft tip on our leech battens without the
fear of breaking.
