Zyvex Performance Materials (ZPM), a recognized worldwide leader in advanced nanomaterials applications, announced on February 15th an agreement with Outerlimits Offshore Powerboats to supply advanced resin systems for the Outerlimits 2010 line of high performance powerboats. The next generation nano-enhanced line of epoxy resins, from the Engineered Solutions team at ZPM, delivers greater strength and toughness to Outerlimits' high performance boats without requiring adjustments to their manufacturing process.
Outerlimits Powerboats are renowned for their astonishing speeds and intense rough water ability, due to cutting edge design and the use of the most advanced composite technology available. The entire product line is built using an exclusive vacuum bagged carbon fiber reinforced lamination schedule, now cured with ZPM epoxy resin solutions.
"Outerlimits Powerboats are built utilizing the finest materials known to man," says Outerlimits President Mike Fiore. "From the exotic leathers used in the interiors to the one of a kind paint schemes, everything is carefully chosen with the owner's unique taste in mind. Beyond the smooth flowing lines and exotic interiors is a race bred hull that has to be capable of withstanding harsh conditions."
"Only Zyvex Performance Materials has the technology to enhance the materials used on the world's greatest powerboats," says ZPM President Lance Criscuolo. "We're extraordinarily proud to be working with Outerlimits and I look forward to seeing our products help Outerlimits reach new speeds and commercial success."
