The Role of Epoxies in Sports & Leisure
When marvelling at the athletic display of players at a sporting event, Epoxies might be the last thing to have crossed your mind. But did you know that they play a key role in improving the performance of sports and leisure equipment for amateurs and professionals alike?
Epoxies are used in tennis rackets, skis, golf equipment, and hockey sticks, to improve responsiveness and make them lighter, stronger, and more resistant to fatigue. Fishing rods and poles, kayaks, jumping poles, bicycles, archery bows, arrows, etc. all use epoxy resins, to improve their performance.
Epoxies also play a key role in the maritime industry, providing coatings for small and large boats and are also used in a variety of water sports.
