COREFLEX SUP BOARD CONSTRUCTION

CoreFlex is a honeycomb-constructed cloth that is widely used in F1 racing and in NASA Space Shuttle construction. It’s Honeycomb structure allows the minimization of the amount of used material to reach minimal weight and maximum strength.

This shaped structure provides a material with minimal density and relative high out of plane compression and plane shear properties.

Honeycomb materials are widely used where flat or slightly curved surfaces are needed and their high Specific strength is valuable. This unique material is perfect for SUP construction where strength, flex and weight are important.

Focus SUP Hawaii uses a 1.5mm mat that is laminated on the EPS foam and then vacuum bagged. Coreflex has many benefits including the way the board functions, a better flex-to-power ratio (FTPr) than regular fiberglass epoxy, and the ability for the board’s hard surface to retain flexibility and at the same time resist breakage often experienced with regular epoxy boards.

Our construction allows the board to preform in a unique 3D FlexControl that wasn’t available in boards until today.

Recently a new, unique process to produce honeycombs has been implemented, allowing a continuous production of a honeycomb core sheet as well as in-line production of honeycombs with direct lamination of flexible skins.

WITH COREFLEX TECHNOLOGY THE EPOXY RESIN FLOWS THROUGH THE HONEYCOMB SKELETON AND SETTLES INSIDE THE HEXAGONAL CELLS. THIS CONSTRUCTION METHOD PRODUCES THE ULTIMATE FLEXIBILITY, LIGHTNESS, AND DURABILITY.

We use CoreFlex technology on several key models from our range of boards, starting with the Pat Rawson performance SUP line and a few select Focus SUP models.

Coreflex Construction Focus SUP Hawaii boards are now available in limited quantities.
