ATL Composites (Molendinar, Australia) has launched KINETIX R111, a clear, bright laminating system for production surfboard lamination, which ATL says is being hailed “a game-changer” by the industry’s leading proponents.

A solvent-free, liquid epoxy resin optimized with a translucent blue tint that produces a clear, bright finish, KINETIX R111 is said to cure to a bloom-free finish that is UV stable and has excellent resistance to yellowing. With a choice of two hardener speeds, fabricators also have a choice of flip speeds for faster production — the H130 Fast, for example, can be flipped within three hours and sanded within five hours at 25°C, which is approximately half the turnaround time of the H125 Standard hardener.

According to Jake Holloway, COO at Shapers, appointed National Distributors for KINETIX R111, the system represents a new benchmark for production boards, allowing epoxy surfboards to maintain a new board look for a longer period of its product lifespan. Further, the epoxy system is user friendly, and enhances product performance.
