What is your foam made from?
It is made from the most sustainable polyurethane formulation currently available for surfboards. We especially developed this recipe for the surfboard industry. Polyurethane is made from two components: polyol and isocyanate. The polyol we developed has a recycling content of around 85% and a wooden component. The isocyanate is based on an MDI isocyanate, which is less toxic for the people working with it and gives the blanks great mechanical properties.

What do you have in stock?
All models with standard rocker and stringer (plywood) are constantly available in moderate quantities. Custom orders (different stringers, rockers, colored glue lines or colored foam) will be produced after your order is placed. This will take up to three weeks until they get shipped to you.
What is the wooden component in the blanks?
The wooden component is an additive, and also an upcycled component, responsible for the small cell size, the very lively flex pattern and an elevated resistance against pressure dings.
Where does the color of your foam come from?
It is the natural color of the foam. It comes from the recycling components and the wood component we use!
Where do you produce?
Our foam is 100% made in Europe!
How does your recycling process work?
We are working with a patented process to turn the raw foam back into liquid state which is then used to create fresh polyol with no loss in quality and an efficiency of 100%. It is a circular system which we can apply indefinitely.
Can you recycle all kinds of PU foam?
Unfortunately, the polyurethane from standard white blanks cannot be recycled. We can only take responsibility for the material we’ve developed ourselves. Our foam is especially developed to be recyclable again. Therefore, we can only take back and recycle our own foam.
How can your foam be recycled?
The foam cannot be mixed with other materials and needs to be returned to us, to ensure the proper recycling.
Can I use epoxy / polyester as resin?
Yes, you can work with both resins!
Is it possible for other applications like Kite, SUP, Windsurf?
Yes it is and we are already working on other exciting projects! If you are interested in any of these applications, we are looking forward to hearing from you!
Do I have to adjust anything in my production / shaping process, when working with polyola?
No, you don’t. In the way your work, polyola blanks are comparable to other polyurethane blanks on the market – that is, same tooling, same process. We try to make it as easy as possible for everyone!
Do you deliver worldwide?
Currently our blanks are only available in Europe. We will expand to other continents as soon as possible! We will keep you updated through our website and our Instagram and Facebook feed.
