Hybrid Tape

 

The Carbon Hybrid Tapes are custom made (purpose built) for surfboard production and have become the industry standard for strengthening the rails and tail area of surfboards, the area’s most affected by high impact and back foot pressure.

 

The Carbon Hybrid Tapes uses a blend of 6 x 2mm thick carbon (in three section to create a three band effect) and a polyester E-Class. This construction ensures a high strength to flex ratio which doesn’t effect the natural flex of the board. The 3 Strand Series offers a more natural flex then compared the Carbon Hybrid and Uni Carbon Tape Series, while still offering high impact strength and is most suited for use on stringers and around the tail of surfboards.

 

Moreover, the use of Uni-Directional weave pattern provides a high impact strength and allows for a kinetic flex pattern that will spring the tail back to its natural curve which creates extra drive and speed.

 

 

Properties:

 

  • High impact resistance

  • Light Weight

  • Increases deck strength

  • Enhanced wet out ability with resin

  • Excellent U.V stability

  • Doesn’t embrittle under high speed impact

  • Ultra tough in tension, shear, and compression

  • High tensile modulus, tenacity, and dimensional stability

  • Reduces weight (at equal composite stiffness)

  • Amazing strength-to-weight ratio

  • Prevents paddlestrike dings and rail cancer 

 

Industry Uses:

 

Back Rails Manufactures place the Carbon Hybrid Tapes on the back rail of surfboards to prevent the tails from shattering and strengthening the deck from foot compressions.

 

Bottom of the board The Carbon Hybrid Tapes are also used on the bottom of the surfboards to create additional spring or pop out of the board. This is know as a kinetic flex, as the board is place under pressure while in transition, during or out of a turn the board springs back to its natural curvature and delivers additional speed.

 

Full Rail of the board The Carbon Hybrid Tapes are often used along the full length of the surfboard rail with stringerless surfboards. This is to add additional strength or to replace the strength that a timber stringer would provide, therefore creating a Parabolic Frame. The Parabolic Frame helps prevents the board from twisting which increases the liveliness/responsiveness, this also creates a parabolic flex pattern that allows to board to deliver more drive, speed and power.

 

Lay-ups: The Carbon Hybrid Tapes are used during the lamination process. The tapes are place on the foam before the cloth is laminated. Most manufactures mark the area they wish to place the Carbon Hybrid Tapes, and brush a small amount of resin on the foam (to prevent to the Carbon Hybrid Tapes from moving). The Carbon Hybrid Tapes are then placed on the resin (making sure the resin has soaked through) and then continue to lay the cloth over the board and laminate as normal. 

 

Resin Compatibility: 

 

The Carbon Hybrid Tapes are compatible with both Epoxy and Polyester Resin.
