JEC Europe 2015 - Formax will be showcasing their range of multiaxial fabrics that can be fully optimised for this niche sector at JEC 2015.

The use of advanced composites in the sporting goods sector continues to evolve and expand due to the increased demand for lightweight, high-performance, impact-resistant equipment. As a result, Formax will be showcasing their range of multiaxial fabrics that can be fully optimised for this niche sector at JEC 2015.

Formax’s carbon, glass and aramid reinforcements are already used extensively in the manufacture of many competitive sporting components such as race bikes, kayaks, surfboards, tennis rackets and diving fins.

In addition, as the winter sports market becomes more aggressive, it becomes increasingly important for manufacturers to exploit the significant performance benefits of advanced multiaxial fabrics.

Formax has responded by developing a range of composite fabrics that can be individually engineered and optimised to suit each customer’s specifications – whether it is for a ski, snowboard, kiteboard or racing skull. The resulting fabrics are tailor-made and entirely unique to the application.
