Aluula Composites has launched a new range of composites which it says is lighter and stronger than similar materials.
According to the company, the composites are made using a patented proprietary technique for fusing disparate materials such as fibers and films at the molecular level. This can remove the need for heavy glues while creating much stronger bonds between the laminated layers, Aluula said. The process also reportedly allows the use of input materials that were previously difficult to bond.
The weight of an Aluula composite material can be as much as 50% lighter than competitive materials while still delivering equal or greater strength characteristics, the company claims.
The new materials include the Aluula Vaepor series, which received the ISPO Textrends Best Soft Product Award for 2021/22 and reportedly has the world’s highest strength to weight characteristics while remaining durable.
The Aluula Durlyte series was recognized by ISPO Textrends as a Top 5 winner at the 2022/23 Awards is more durable, and in third party abrasion testing, it was almost 10x more abrasion resistant compared to any other material available, Aluula said.
