HIGH ELASTICITY,  LIGHT WEIGHT

Elasticity is indicated with the Young’s modulus of a material, and a lower Young’s modulus means higher material elasticity, which improves its damping properties. Koroyd is more than twice as elastic as wood and more than 90% lighter than a damping alternative like rubber.

KOROYD IS AN EFFECTIVE DAMPENER

Koroyd is an effective dampener, which is able to reduce vibrations in structures through a reversible elastic deformation of the tubes.

The capacity to reduce vibration correlates strongly with the ability of the core to temporarily elastically deform, without damaging the structure.

TWICE THE ELASTICITY OF WOODEN CORES

Standardised tests show that the Koroyd core is more than twice as elastic as wood cores used in skis, leading to much better damping; an increased vibration reduction capacity. The Koroyd core is also 75% lighter than typical wood cores and about 90% lighter than rubber, an alternative damping material.

Regardless of its elasticity, the Koroyd core is mechanically very strong.
