Aerialite® X

A strategic partnership between BGF and specialty fiber manufacturer, Innegra Technologies has produced a brand new Aerialite innovation called Aerialite X. Aerialite X is designed with a range of fiber combinations from 100% Innegra fiber to Innegra hybrid designs. The latest advancement comprises Innegra fiber co-mingled as part of the fiber matrix in both glass and carbon. Fibers can be custom designed to enhance your product requirements. The result is an extremely durable fabric that withstands the most intense conditions.

Used for high impact applications in surfboards, SUP boards, auto racing and protective sports equipment, Aerialite X delivers impact resistance, damage tolerance and vibration reduction. It’s perfect for marine or land use with intrinsic hydrophobic properties and remarkable strength-to-weight ratio. Aerialite X is truly the next level of lightweight, high-performance composite fabrics.

Available in a range of weights and fiber combinations, Aerialite X offers versatility for use in many products that need added flex and durability.

Benefits of Innegra S Fiber

  • Reduces weight
  • Increases damage tolerance
  • Increases impact resistance
  • Reduces maintenance
  • Incredible strength-to-weight ratio
  • Hydrophobic: Does not absorb moisture
  • Vibration dampening: Boat absorbs the energy, making for a smoother ride
  • Hydrolytically stable: Resists chemical breakdown below the waterline

Benefits of Weight Reduction

  • Lighter boats can go faster
  • Powerboats benefit from being able to use smaller engines at a lower cost
  • Fuel savings for powerboats (fuel usage reports www.boattest.com)
  • Less muscle fatigue in non-motor powered boats
  • Less weight high up on a boat, reducing the roll and yaw, and improving the stability and ride
