Pebax® can be used in various sports application including:
Outsoles for American football, soccer, rugby and baseball footwear
Other athletic footwear components
Ski boots components
Pebax® Resins offer the following design propeties
Lightweight Pebax® Resin has a very low density that allows the design of lighter parts. Pebax® Resin is ideal for outsoles, offering resilience to repeated stress, along with resistance to distortion and deformation.
Flexibility Maximum strength where you need support, flexibility where you need movement. Pebax® Resin grades can be combined within a single component to provide stiffness at one end, flexibility at the other. Controlled flexibility that governs the movement of the shoe and returns it to its original shape at each stride.
Dampening Shock absorbance in sports equipment improves control and increases enjoyment. Pebax® Resins can absorb the shocks and vibrations normally experienced (e.g. with tennis rackets).
Cold Resistant Unlike toes and fingers, Pebax® Resins don't stiffen in cold weather. Snow shoe deckings made with Pebax® Resins retain their mechanical properties and resilience under frigid conditions (-40°C).
Resiliency Premium golf balls exploit Pebax® Resins high resistance to deformation and excellent compressive strength. Pebax® Resins in various core technologies offers excellent resistance to permanent deformation, which can improve distance and ball flight.
High Strength Pebax® Resin is an ideal material for high performance athletic shoes and equipment. Exceptional compression and fatigue resistance make Pebax® Resin the best choice for outsoles where high strength and support are needed at low density. Pebax® Resin can be injected into very low thickness parts.
