Leveraging the performance of polymers in the sports industry
The sports equipment industry is evolving fast. Manufacturers today are on the constant lookout for materials that offer comparable performances to those of metal in terms of impact resistance, aesthetics and safety, while at the same time enabling increased flexibility and weight reduction.
High performance polymers, in particular Long Fiber Thermoplastics (LFT), possess all the required characteristics. Their second-to-none properties when it comes to mechanical strength, friction resistance and design freedom, not to mention cost reduction and higher recyclability, make them a perfect choice for a wide range of applications in the sports market, from bikes to snowmobiles to protective gear.
