Sporting Goods

Whether you pursue sports professionally or as an amateur, you always want your equipment to bring you safety, comfort, and fun. Satisfaction is often directly related to the materials comprising the equipment itself.  As a worldwide leader in material science, Solvay Engineering Plastics has always focused on working together with sport equipment designers to provide the best solutions.
 
Polyamide-based Technyl® products from Solvay Engineering Plastics have been used extensively in diverse sporting goods applications, delivering excellent mechanical performance for bicycles, footwear, winter sports, fishing, and hunting equipment, and much more.
 
For winter sports equipment, such as snowboard bindings that need to work in extremely low temperature conditions, Technyl® high impact modified, and glass or carbon reinforced grades maintain outstanding impact and shock resistance.
 
Technyl® engineering plastics help sporting goods manufacturers focus both on product performance and aesthetic aspects, as fashion appearance is critical to the sports world.
 
For our growing number of environmentally conscious customers, Solvay Engineering Plastics recycled polyamide fibers are the ideal choice for optimizing sporting goods while reducing environmental impact.
