Tech Features - Fiberglass

Fiberglass combined with specialized resins are used on the top and bottom of the wood core to protect it from water damage and is also a very important component when controlling the torsional and longitudinal flex of our boards. When applying the resin, we use a mechanized dispensing system which accurately provides a calculated amount of resin per board to ensure the proper resin to glass ratio is being achieved. This process eliminates potential dry spots, preventing de-lamination and ensures no weight is added from excess resin. All CAPiTA boards are made this way and feature one of the following glass and resin configurations.

The CUSTOM WEAVE configuration features a resin/glass application borrowed from the marine industry, which yields much stronger and more rigid qualities allowing us to decrease the wood core thickness. The main focus is to save wood core weight by increasing resin performance. This means you get a lighter board while achieving higher energy return. The biaxial/triaxial fiberglass combination creates more response while increasing strength and durability. Combine this layup with one of the many additives we have available and you get a high performing board tailored to meet your style of riding.

SPECIAL BLEND EVO TECH is an Eco Friendly wet lay-up process that uses a polyurethane based resin component requiring lower consumption of energy and yielding higher technical properties. This adhesion process improves the factory’s working environment, as it does not contain some of the same harsh chemical characteristics used in resins at other factories around the world. This configuration uses an optimum blend of biaxial glass laminated in conjunction with structural additives to customize performance objectives.

FORM 6

Space Metal Fantasy
Micro-Scope

The FORM 6 glass configuration consists of 612g/m2 biaxial fiberglass placed on both the base and topside of the core each layer having fibers oriented in zero and 90 degree angles laminated to increase energy and durability. This progressive glass configuration is laid up wet by hand during the lamination process and provides a durable predictable board that initiates turns easily, while retaining the pop necessary to handle variable conditions.
