OOA Carbon Prepreg rudder for a raceboat.
DATE OF PROJECT
CML used techniques to mould the prepreg rudder in the polyester tooling, curing it to 60 degrees Celsius before demoulding and then carrying out free standing final post cure up to 100 degrees Celsius. CML then painted the rudder in high UV clear coat to protect the epoxy from UV damage. A typical rudder for this class of boat usually weighs 15kg, CML were able to bring this down to 7.7kg.
