Monday, 10 November 2014

The effectiveness of a vibration-reducing cork composite skateboard will be recognised with a JEC Asia Composites Innovation Award at the show on November 17 in Singapore.?

Traditionally, skateboards have always been made of wood or carbon composites, but Lavender Composites and Archer Cork Skateboards of Australia are employing CoreCork manufactured by Amorim in France. It is reinforced with Amplitex flax fabrics developed by Bcomp of Switzerland and infused with GreenPoxy made by Sicomin in France.?
