Beating the competition
When you’re facing tough competition and harsh conditions, you better be sure. From the hardest roads to the stormiest seas, you need to know your sports equipment won’t let you down. It needs to raise your game, and it needs to keep you safe – no ifs, no buts, no maybes. Thanks to our strong, lightweight, and impact-resistant materials Twaron®, Technora®, and Endumax®, we’re delivering lighter, stronger, more durable sporting solutions. Solutions that deliver every time – enabling better, safer performance than ever.
Whether it’s for sailing, kiteboarding, or motorcycling, our para-aramid fibers Twaron® and Technora® and UHMWPE film Endumax® deliver high-performance alternatives to traditional reinforcement materials. These game-changing materials have a unique set of mechanical properties. Twaron® is five times stronger than steel with a high modulus – while Technora® is eight times stronger. And Endumax® offers unrivaled stiffness, as well as impact and abrasion resistance. Combined with their excellent chemical and heat resistance, it’s no surprise that these materials produce sporting solutions that perform better than ever, from low-stretch sails to lighter yachts.
