While you’re chewing on the data, here’s a few things we want to point out:
- The myth of epoxy being stiffer than polyester is officially busted. Epoxy resin Infused Glass™ boards are up to 13% more flexible in bending. The more fiberglass you put on the board the less drastic the difference between the flex of polyester and epoxy boards.
- We looked exclusively at deck buckling resistance in our study - that’s how boards usually break. If you want uniform strength everywhere on your board, stick to equal amounts of glass on the deck and hull.
