NOTOX, a surfboard creator based in 2006, is dedicated to sustainability. Up to now, the NOTOX crew labored with Sicomin and used its GreenPoxy bio-resins in surfboards bolstered with sustainable cork, bamboo, and flax.
The NOTOX crew will not be resting on its sustainable laurels, they usually design with the adage the waste of some might be sources for others in thoughts. It is usually vital to the NOTOX crew that they supply boards that match surfers’ values of respecting nature.
NOTOX is now partnering with Sicomin and Airbus to design and construct the brand new line of R-CARBON surfboards. The R-CARBON is constructed of carbon fiber that’s declared unusable for plane functions by Airbus due to defects akin to an incapability to be pre-formed or brief roll lengths. Utilizing a moist lamination course of with vacuum bag consolidation, the carbon fiber is mixed with Sicomin’s excessive bio-content resin, GreenPoxy 56, and Surf Clear hardener. The result’s a transparent and shiny laminate with excessive mechanical properties.
