Boatbuilding Methods and Materials (Dual Winners)

Winner

beSpline Shaped Foam Kit
IBEX Show Innovation Awards Winner 2023

beSpline

Shaped Foam Kit

Booth #1-026 | Website

-Shaped Foam Kits offered for PET, PVC or SAN (Corecell™) foam core.
-Full sheets are thermoformed with double curvature.
-Chamfers and cut-outs are implemented where required.
-Trimmed, labelled and supplied with easy-to-read core map, reducing build time and labor cost.

Judge Tim Murphy said, “One of the longstanding problems in composite boat building is how to turn flat foam panels into the complex curves of a boat hull or deck. beSpline’s new North American facility uses heat to ‘thermoform’ flat panels into complex curves, omitting kerfs, that are delivered to boatbuilders in kit form. The result is lighter, stronger, higher-quality boat structures.”
