Not only should skis and snowboards look appealing, they also need to be built to withstand the rigors of snow and ice. Almost all popular skis and snowboards contain composite materials, which are manufactured by Isosport in Austria.
For the modern, high-quality composite fabrics rovings and fabrics made of glass and carbon fiber are impregnated with high-quality epoxy resins.
Afterwards it is cured in a continuous process with infrared emitters from Heraeus.
So far, metal-tube emitters were used for this process, but in 2018 they were replaced by medium wave infrared emitters from Heraeus.
The more modern emitters have a gold reflector, which directs the heat directly to the product, which significantly increases the efficiency.
Christian Puschitz from the purchasing department at Isosport Verbundbauteile GmbH is enthusiastic:
"The new emitters have improved energy efficiency by up to 30%."

The well-known representation of chemical elements is just one example of how objects can be arranged and classified
The periodic table of elements that most chemistry books depict is only one special case. This tabular overview of the chemical elements, which goes back to...
Light can be used not only to measure materials’ properties, but also to change them. Especially interesting are those cases in which the function of a material can be modified, such as its ability to conduct electricity or to store information in its magnetic state. A team led by Andrea Cavalleri from the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter in Hamburg used terahertz frequency light pulses to transform a non-ferroelectric material into a ferroelectric one.
Ferroelectricity is a state in which the constituent lattice “looks” in one specific direction, forming a macroscopic electrical polarisation. The ability to...
Researchers at TU Graz calculate the most accurate gravity field determination of the Earth using 1.16 billion satellite measurements. This yields valuable knowledge for climate research.
The Earth’s gravity fluctuates from place to place. Geodesists use this phenomenon to observe geodynamic and climatological processes. Using...
Discovery by Brazilian and US researchers could change the classification of two species, which appear more akin to jellyfish than was thought.
The tube anemone Isarachnanthus nocturnus is only 15 cm long but has the largest mitochondrial genome of any animal sequenced to date, with 80,923 base pairs....
Researchers at Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden, have discovered a completely new way of capturing, amplifying and linking light to matter at the nanolevel. Using a tiny box, built from stacked atomically thin material, they have succeeded in creating a type of feedback loop in which light and matter become one. The discovery, which was recently published in Nature Nanotechnology, opens up new possibilities in the world of nanophotonics.
Photonics is concerned with various means of using light. Fibre-optic communication is an example of photonics, as is the technology behind photodetectors and...
