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%."

For the first time, an international team of scientists based in Regensburg, Germany, has recorded the orbitals of single molecules in different charge states in a novel type of microscopy. The research findings are published under the title “Mapping orbital changes upon electron transfer with tunneling microscopy on insulators” in the prestigious journal “Nature”.
The building blocks of matter surrounding us are atoms and molecules. The properties of that matter, however, are often not set by these building blocks...
Scientists at the University of Konstanz identify fierce competition between the human immune system and bacterial pathogens
Cell biologists from the University of Konstanz shed light on a recent evolutionary process in the human immune system and publish their findings in the...
Laser physicists have taken snapshots of carbon molecules C₆₀ showing how they transform in intense infrared light
When carbon molecules C₆₀ are exposed to an intense infrared light, they change their ball-like structure to a more elongated version. This has now been...
The so-called Abelian sandpile model has been studied by scientists for more than 30 years to better understand a physical phenomenon called self-organized...
Physicists from the University of Basel have developed a new method to examine the elasticity and binding properties of DNA molecules on a surface at extremely low temperatures. With a combination of cryo-force spectroscopy and computer simulations, they were able to show that DNA molecules behave like a chain of small coil springs. The researchers reported their findings in Nature Communications.
DNA is not only a popular research topic because it contains the blueprint for life – it can also be used to produce tiny components for technical applications.
