Los Angeles, California - Surfboard manufacturer US Blanks llc has released a new high-performance polyurethane foam formulation, the company said in a 4 Sept statement.
US Blanks 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," said US Blanks president Kimberly Thress, in the announcement.
"Our goal was to come out with a light density foam with higher compressive strength properties to hold up to the rigours 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 its standard formulation, which has also been improved, will still be available to customers.
