Compounds for the sports and leisure industry
Plastics accompany us in recreational activities and turn sports into an experience, in every season and on every terrain. The properties of AKRO-PLASTIC compounds ensure a firm hold and safe landings in winter sports, on the road bike and MTB. Carbon fiber reinforced compounds are irreplaceable for bicycles of all categories due to highest stiffness at low weight - ICF®-Compounds will bring you easily up to speed in pedal and boot systems and safely bring you to a halt in brake systems.
You can rely on the durability and resistance to environmental factors of AKRO-PLASTIC compounds in watersports and diving. Whether you are casting your fishing rod or watching the world from above with a drone, AKRO-PLASTIC provides optimized solutions in plastics for Sports and Leisure Applications.
