DuraSurf™ has a long list of properties that make it ideal for applications in a wide range of fields. It combines the greatest impact strength of any thermoplastic, with a low coefficient of friction and tremendous abrasion resistance.
The low coefficient of friction, tremendous abrasion resistance and non-absorbing nature of DuraSurf™ UHMW makes for an outstanding running surface for snowboards and skis. It’s sublimatability and dimensional stability provide for excellent graphic presentation and die cutting. Its impact resistance and machinability allow for DuraSurf™ to be used as tip fill and sidewalls, and the bondability and light weight makes for a great topsheet. Similar requirements are creating new opportunities for DuraSurf™ in the wakeboard and kiteboard industries.
