Los Angeles, California - Surfboard manufacturer US Blanks, llc has announced the release of its new high performance polyurethane foam formulation, effective immediately, the company said in a 4 September statement.
The company said the new RED density formulation was in response to "growing demand for a light density, high performance surfboard blank."
"We are very pleased to offer this new formulation which was specifically designed for the high performance and team rider market," says US Blanks president Kimberly Thress. "Our goal was to come out with a light density foam with higher compressive strength properties to hold up to the rigors and demands at the professional level. The tight, compact cell structure, light weight and excellent flex properties make our new RED density the perfect choice for shapers and board builders striving to achieve the highest levels of performance."
The company added that their standard formulation, which has also been improved, will still be available to customers.
