The advantages of Toray CFRT® composites in sports and recreational products

Composite materials are often used in the manufacturing of sports and recreational products due to their unique combination of properties. These materials are made up of two or more different materials, such as fibers and a resin, that are combined to create a new material with improved characteristics.

One of the main advantages of using composite materials in sports and recreational products is their strength and durability. These materials are able to withstand the high stresses and impacts that are common in many sports, making them ideal for use in items such as bicycle frames, skis, and snowboards. Composite materials are also lightweight, which is important for sports equipment that needs to be portable and easy to handle.

In addition to their strength and durability, composite materials are also resistant to fatigue and corrosion, making them a good choice for products that are used frequently or in harsh environments. They are also resistant to temperature changes, which is important for sports and recreational products that may be used in extreme conditions.


Case study: Air Core Composite™

Inflatable Composites is revolutionizing portable structures using Air Core Composite™ technology. Using Air Core Composite™, they have increased their inflatable paddle boards’ strength to perform like hard boards, yet retained the ability to make them easy to roll up and store.

Air Core Composite™ is a patented carbon fiber reinforced laminate using Toray’s continuous fiber reinforced thermoplastic composite (CFRT®) Cetex® TC940 (PET) as a base material.
