An innovative one piece hockey stick made using a new third generation toughened high end resin system looks set to be more widely used after the recent World Ice Hockey Championships.

The stick, using Araldite NanoTech Composite RTM system from Huntsman Advanced Materials and a design by Composite Busch SA, was used by the Swiss ice hockey team and has won widespread praise from the Russian, Austrian, Latvian and French teams.

Patented new Huntsman nanotechnology gives the hockey stick extra strength, enhancing the all important features of good stick and blade slashing properties as well as bending, resistance and torsion features needed in championship games. And the one piece design allows the energy released by the player to be delivered, smoothly, directly and more efficiently onto the puck.

The new Araldite NanoTech Composite RTM system is able to withstand shock without developing micro cracks making it ideal for any sector where highly exposed parts need protection such as in high contact sports and in the automotive area.
