Green Composite Revolution

light, resistant, flexible and ecological

Driven by the vision to build greener composite parts without losing performance or quality we started to work with Cork in 2016. Knowing the problem concerning lack of shear force and pressure resistance, we joined two different worlds by merging Fibers and Cork.

 

HARDCORK technology was born.

A greener technology with increased performance.

Beside deep diving into ecological technology, we developed new and unique products within the Boardsport industry, including a small series to test industrialization solutions.

You can buy first products on our website, although our focus is on pushing limits with HARDCORK technology – our goal is to find new applications everyday.

 

MATERIAL

working with nature

Cork

Cork is an amazing sandwich core element due to its sustainable, dampening and insolation benefits

Fibers

Experimenting with all kinds of fibers, the vision is to use natural fibers such as Flax, Cotton or Hemp only

Resin

Using aircraft certified epoxy for finished products for now, R&D goal is a long lasting natural resin

 

PROPERTIES

water

resistant

suitable for extreme environments

high shear 

strength

for building

strong parts

exceptional  damping properties

better absorption thanks to low density cork combined

high impact resistance

due to

elasticity of cork

great

drapability

to follow

complex contours

great strength to weight ratio

based on tensile strength of shortfibers and density of cork

APPLICATIONS

Skate

Surf

Further Boardsports

More Applications Under Development
