A strategic partnership between BGF Industries and Innegra Technologies produces the next generation of lightweight, high-performance fabrics for composites

Since its inception, BGF’s Aerialite fabrics have been the preferred brand for professional surfers and water sports enthusiasts worldwide. Now, BGF Industries, manufacturer of Aerialite and other high performance materials, unveils Aerialite X, created in collaboration with specialty fiber manufacturer, Innegra Technologies.

Aerialite X is designed using a wide range of fiber combinations from 100% Innegra to Innegra hybrid designs. This latest advancement comprises Innegra fiber co-mingled as part of the fiber matrix in both glass and carbon with other fibers coming soon.  The result is an exceptionally durable fabric, a combination of JEC Innovation Award-winning Innegra H hybrid fibers and BGF’s own custom designs that deliver the ultimate edge in any product.

BGF President, Robby Dunnagan, comments, “Aerialite X takes water and extreme sports to the next level. We’ve combined Aerialite surf glass designs with tough, durable Innegra fiber to create a composite fabric worthy of the Aerialite name.”

This fabric delivers the impact resistance, damage tolerance and vibration reduction critical for today’s extreme sports. Incorporating Innegra, the lightest structural fiber available on the market today, Aerialite X provides unmatched toughness while also reducing weight. Additionally, Innegra fibers are hydrophobic (do not absorb moisture) and are hydrolytically stable for resistance to chemical breakdown below the waterline.
