For superior strength in light-weight lamination lay-ups.
SpectraCarb™ is a unique tubular stockinette developed specifically for the orthotic and prosthetic industry by Comfort Products. It is a combination of Spectra® and Carbon. Spectra® fiber is one of the world’s strongest and lightest fibers. It is, pound-for-pound, ten times stronger than steel, and more durable than polyester. Spectra is common in body armor and as reinforcement for military boat hulls that need bullet-proof capabilities. Carbon fiber has become common in orthotic and prosthetic applications. It is also used in many other industries where strength, stiffness, light weight, and outstanding fatigue characteristics are important.
SpectraCarb™ has already become a favourite for technicians and practitioners. Technicians appreciate that the material does not itch, while practitioners love the heat-and-relieve characteristics that allow changes in the laminated device with use of a heat gun.
