A collaborative effort between FCS and its manufacturing partners has seen the development of a new fin material that maintains the strength and flex properties equal to FCS's Glass Flex material, yet has a reduced impact on the environment.
Used carpet tiles, made by the world leader in modular floor tiling InterfaceFLOR, are recycled by stripping the nylon fibre from the tile. This material is then sent to a specialist composite maker who formulates the new material by mixing the fibre with fiberglass. The new composite is then given to C.Brewer to mould FCS fins. The final product is then distributed via FCS to retailers and surfboard manufactures to be used by surfers around the world.
