Sigmatex will reveal one of Reebok CCM Hockey’s new 2017 sticks – SuperTacks 2.0 at JEC World 2017 which utilises sigmaST- Sigmatex’s Spread Tow carbon fibre and is designed to achieve maximum performance through lightweight, precision and strength.
Outperforming its predecessor, Sigmatex says the stick takes full advantage of sigmaST’s performance properties. Providing near zero crimp, sigmaST allows for a thinner laminate than traditional 2D textiles whilst achieving the same strength. Behind the look of the elite checkerboard finish, sigmaSTprovides improved coverage making for a stronger stick capable of delivering a harder hit.
In addition to end use products, Sigmatex will exhibit a range of its innovative carbon fibre textiles including its advanced woven solutions, 3D woven preforms, Unidirectional, Spread Tow, Multiaxial and its latest offering to the market – Recycled Fabrics.
Visit Sigmatex in Hall 6, Stand G5 at JEC World 2017.
