The Aztron composite boards is built around a high-density 20 kg/m3 Expanded Polystyrene core (EPS) that is shaped using a computer numerical controlled (CNC) machine. The EPS foam is lightweight, provides thickness and buoyancy. The foam core of the composite boards is sandwiched between fiberglass or carbon skins that creates the stiffness and structure of the composite board. Additional marine grade wood stringers are bonded in the center of the board to give increased rigidity and durability.
Aztron’s Carbon Composite board makes use of the latest technology and manufacturing processes to build the premium light weight Carbon Sandwich Construction paddle board. The Carbon SUP is wrapped with 3K biaxial carbon fiber, which adds huge strength to the board without compromising the desirable flex-reflex characteristics, therefore generate huge amounts of speed and drive. The premium carbon fiber material is used in the overall board reinforcing process, gives unmatched strength and weight savings. The carbon board is then placed into a vacuum bag to consolidate all the layers of materials and remove excess resin, following which the board is placed in a temperate controlled environment to post cure the resin and finish the composite structure.
Fiberglass is the structural backbone to Aztron’s composite SUP. The fiberglass reinforcement provides structure and strength to the board. We use 2 to 6 ounce fiberglass for our Epoxy or Carbon SUPs. With different amounts of fiber running from nose to tail and in different directions, it provides the strength and the rigidity where required, without adding much additional weight, therefore enhancing the user experience.
