Default Tejin sail cloth for inflatable kites

There are only a handful of material manufacturers that provide the cloth most commonly used by kite manufacturers in today's market.

Tejin sailcloth is one of the largest suppliers of inflatable kite material... their top grade of cloth has been an excellent performer, giving longevity and durability in modern inflatable kites.
There are different grades, and a good kite factory will use a light-table to double check the quality of the weave and color of a roll of cloth, before they use it in sewing production. As a roll comes in, it is typically a meter wide, and will have 1-3,000 meters of cloth on the roll. Like a giant spool of thread, the roll is unwound from one roll and wound up onto a new roll.... as it passes over a light table. The light table shows any discrepancy in the material, including thin spots, mis-coloration or bunched up weave.

I learned about this process from the Ozone kite factory in Vietnam. They began using a light table when they discovered that material was not always the same quality. By adding a light table to the process, Ozone can eliminate any faulty batches of material, and ensure only the best cloth makes it into the kites. They claim this is one major step that has eliminated most warranty issues and helped make the Instincts a long lasting and durable kite.
