Process uses less material and creates a stronger bond according to developers



Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 15 May, 2017 – After working with some of the most widely known shapers and athletes around the globe for the past four years, Varial has utilized its advanced engineering capabilities to expand beyond Varial Foam, the company’s high-performance, proprietary surfboard blanks. Varial’s new, patent-pending process for glassing boards is known as Infused Glass. In this process, fiberglass is applied to a shaped surfboard blank without resin.


The dry-laminated surfboard is then vacuum bagged and injected with polyester or epoxy resin under high pressure. This technology, adapted from processes used to make giant wind turbine blades and racing boat hulls, yields a highly-repeatable, uniform laminate with extremely low resin content.


“Boards made with Infused Glass are stronger and lighter than boards made with traditional hand laminations, and allow for more precise control of a board’s flex characteristics,” said Varial CEO Edison Conner.

In this new process Varial also says they have the ability to isolate and engineer specific characteristics into the skins of the surfboard for any desired performance attribute. 


“Our business was established on bringing materials from the aerospace industry into the surf world,” added Conner. “Using advanced technology to engineer a foam that was superior to all other surfboard foams in the marketplace was the first step – Infused Glass now allows us to focus on the other major component of surfboard construction in our quest to help shapers create the highest-performance and most highly-tuned surfboards.
