INFLATABLE * REVOLUTION

* A new Construction for Inflatable SUP Boards


NEW PRODUCTION IN EUROPE

NEW INFLATABLE SUP BOARD CONSTRUCTION During 2014, Mistral is set to launch the World’s first inflatable stand up paddleboard (iSUP) range, manufactured using a revolutionary new internal construction technology. Up to this point in the sport’s history, iSUP boards have for the most part, relied upon a manufacturing technology which uses a drop-stitch material. Thanks to the outstanding ability and experience of technicians working in cooperation with Mistral, combined with European based state-of-the-art production facilities and technology, coated fabrics of superb quality using multiple-layers of PVC, have been developed successfully and are now being manufactured exclusively for Mistral. The requirements for coated fabrics are becoming more and more diverse, whether they need be flame-retardant, tear-resistant, anti-static or highly weatherproof. Modern manufacturing technology and quality control of the production processes, now guarantees the highest levels of safety and quality.

The double-wall fabric is a three-dimensionally woven structure, the two basic fabrics interlinked with numerous spacer threads. Instead of using single linear polyester threads, this new German advanced technology, incorporates a woven, drop-down construction. The result is a much lighter, durable and stiffer board.

Made in Europe with superior raw materials and • 100% REACh Certificated quality • Woven drop-down construction replacing unstable Jersey drop-down knitting • Lightest and most torsion stiff double wall fabric worldwide • Warp and weft tensile strength up to 50% more durable than existing technology All componens of the double-wall fabrics used are compliant with the European Community regulation on Chemicals -REACh no. 1907/2006 (Registration, Evaluation and Authorization of Chemicals). The aim of REACh is to improve the protection of human health and the environment. There are absolutely no prohibited substances, such as lead or cadmium in the fabrics used, making this product unique in the world! The fabrics are manufactured in Germany under the internationally recognized quality norm DIN EN ISO 9001:2008 with air.

surfaces to be glued are essential, being that the upper and lower layers of a cut must be absolutely congruent. To compensate for any possible process intolerances of the doublewall fabric, including weft distortion, Mistral’s production process, ensures cuts are measured both longitudinally and transversely and that only the best 2-component glues, fabrics and additional components are used.

Processing of technical textiles and of double-wall fabrics in particular, requires maximum precision and care. For this reason, manufacturing of these new Mistral iSUP boards is from within a Mistral controlled European company and factory, featuring completely new and modern production facilities overseen by highly trained staff and technicians. Exact cutting and detailed markings of the

The main difference to normal dropstich material is the method how the threads are made. In the new Mistral SUP light weight boards, the threads are woven like a pullover.

The woven down drop is crossing from top to bottom like a X.

Environmental protection is a decisive part of our thinking As a modern international company, Mistral’s thinking is not merely local or national but most significantly, global. Minimization of environmental damage, maximization of efficiency and economy of use of raw materials with a mission to ensure protection and care for our natural resources – are integral to the entrepreneurial principles of
