Shapers Fused Composites – proudly engineered by Shapers Composites Co.

Shapers Fused Composites are unique unidirectional Fibre Reinforcement products custom designed specifically for the Surfboard Manufacturing process, offering a full range of premium exotic materials.  

Shapers Fused Carbon is where we fuse the highest grade carbon together with a polymer webbing system. The Fused Polymer goes completely transparent when wet out with resin and is compatible with polyester and epoxy resins.

The major benefit we were seeking with Shapers Fused Carbon was to have it laminate completely flat in prominent areas such as centre strips down the surfboard. In other words, Shapers Fused Carbon does not leave a raised edge as some woven tapes can.

Available in widths of up to 20”.

The Benefits:
Minimal resin absorption
Highest strength to weight ratio
Flattest carbon reinforcement available
Lightest carbon option available
Easy to cut and prepare
Allows for customisation (slitting into layups for unique designs)
Does not fray like traditional woven fabrics
Lies flat (thinner then A4 Paper)
No extra weight or thickness like traditional woven tapes
Ideal Usage:
Reinforcing surfboard tails
Responsive flex and strengthening stringer area on surfboard deck or bottom (especially stringless boards)
Simply applies directly between foam and fibreglass

Please note: Fused Carbon cannot be shifted or curved like woven tapes and is therefore optimal for straight layups.
