For years Mitsubishi Chemical Advanced Materials Composites has been developing and manufacturing glass fiber reinforced thermoplastic composites for the automotive industry and the building sector. Increasingly, companies from various other sectors discover the advantages of fiber reinforced thermoplastics.
Extremely unbreakable, impact resistant and at the same time efficient to manufacture: GMT was thus predestined for use in forming the blade of an ice hockey stick.
GMT was also used in forming a horse saddle. The decisive advantage here was high stability with defined flexibility.
For a boat paddle, however, GMTex® is the choice: high section modulus, high stiffness and abrasion resistance. For water rafting very high impact resistance is required because of high edge load caused by stones.
