 COMPOSITE PROPELLERS

 

The stratification in the mold of structural components and binders is called  "Composite".

 

The structural elements normally are composed of natural or synthetic fibers (glasscarbonpolyesterkevlarwith special mechanical characteristics that normally are woven to form a mesh.

 

Several layers of tissues also of different origin are superimposed and impregnated with adhesive resins that once hardened will carry these in position at the desired shape .

 

The different mechanical characteristics of the tissues can be used to enhance stiffnesselasticityresistance to shocks or to abrasion also only in some areas of the part to be realized.

 

This type of construction allows to obtain self-supporting shapes with exceptional mechanical properties that are not obtainable with any other process of machining.

 

The propellers obtained with this system can be made with profiles and shapes that can not be obteined with common matherials for example in wood (thin profiles or plant curved) but even with heavier materials such as aluminum.

 

The dimensional stability of the composite (wood propeller is deformed with temperature and humidity) and the resistance to abrasion (the wood is very fragile even if painted), increase the propeller operating life  and especially offer constant performances.


 

The composite props now may be ordered in standard or light version,
shape, form and profile are the same.

standard version with a recognized, mythical high impact resistance.

 

the standard version is repairable in most cases (to be assessed from time to time). It is the best choice in the presence of sand or grass.

 


The light version is on average lighter by about 30%, is built with a different technology and with a higher percentage of carbon fiber.

 

The user, however, should know that the impact resistance is lower and in many cases the propeller is not repairable. It is the best choice for compettion use.
