Structural Durability

Our range of Robustlite boards have been re-engineered and improved on previous composite technology systems to give the paddler maximum performance with minimum fuss over dents, dings and the oh so common epoxy / polystyrene delamination problem which all race board builders have encountered for many a year. To further eliminate the delamination problem we stay one step ahead of our rivals with our unique and exclusive use of Bennett “vent”.
“Robustlite” construction boards, although possessing superior strength and durability levels not seen before in epoxy race boards are still dingable and breakable if subjected to extreme elements of Mother Nature or a collision with rocks or another board etc

How is this superior structural durability achieved?

Our shaped E.P.S. blank is actually the lightest shapeable foam on earth. Since the 1960’s it has been highly further developed for high impact resistance. It is highly resilient to bumps and knocks featuring a “memory” so as it is hit, it soaks up the shock springing back to shape. This tends to minimize pressure dents. A combination of the lighter grade blank, combined with a thicker more durable hi-tech sandwich skin – results being a proven winner! “Goodbye stone age technology”

Our Robustlite construction requires highly sophisticated tooling, precision laminating and resin dispersion. The lamination bonds to the blank by means of heat and pressure. Each board is totally cured before it leaves the production facility. At the centre of the sandwich is a 4mm high tech, high-density PVC sheet foam – a very expensive, heat resistant and impact tolerant material. Once fibreglass is bonded to both sides of the sheet foam and totally wrapped around the softer EPS core, we achieve a tough exterior skin over a lightweight core.

This creates the ultimate race board construction, light, strong and ultra rigid – less flex meaning less resistance through the water resulting in a quicker surfcraft.

Strength

Squeezing your board can easily simulate the flex test. The Bennett Robustlite range of boards will have minimal, if any flex. This is due to the strength of the foam sandwich. Whereas a Standard Epoxy Board will take the full force of a collision at the point of impact.
