It is carefully worded technobabble IMO!! ;-))
Dacron is a trade name owned by DuPont I think, it is a cloth made from
The taffeta base material the tech sheet babbles about is polyester too, but
it is being laminated to a polyester membrane, so there is still potential
It is true some "dacron" cloths are stiffened with a resin which breaks
down, but there has also been a cloth available for several years that is
heat bonded and flattened, which I think is what is being used in the North,
Slingshot, Airush kites.
I still think that Naish do a lot of research and development testing and
the cloth is most likely a huge improvement over the cchnobabble
I really dislike badly researched technobabble, especially when they say bad
things about a product and in fact their product is made for the same base

Subject: [ksurf] Naish Polyfuse Tech Sheet!
Does anyone knows if the new leading edge fabric from Naish
(Polyfuse) is as good as they say in theirs Tech Sheet? You can see
it on www.kiteboarding.be .
They are saying that this new material (used on both Aero and Virus)
is stronger and stiffer than Dacron. Is this the usual "comercial
crap" or does it really have some advantages?
