Challenge

Provide a light, tough and attractive material solution

Athex GmbH searched for a low weight, transparent material that had very good properties so that it could withstand rough use and reuse from workout activities.

It also had to look good.

Makrolon® polycarbonate was the material of choice because of its high transparency and the impact resistance.
Solution

Makrolon® polycarbonate: a great fit for fitness device

Makrolon® polycarbonate is a versatile plastic that has been proven in a number of innovative applications. Makrolon® is inherently durable and impact resistant. But, despite its strength, it is lightweight-important because the SLASHPIPE is held during use. Also, this material is transparent, so the colorful liquid inside the cylinder is easily seen, creating a unique look.

The result: a durable, transparent, and attractive fitness device that helps people have fun while they stay fit.

Why Covestro Makrolon® polycarbonate was the right fit for SLASHPIPE

  • Transparent: Clear polycarbonate lets users see colorful liquid inside the cylinder.
