|Surfboard Sustainability||DMShapes is approved to build Level One ECOBOARDS using Qualified Materials.
In addition working with ATL Composites on the Gold Coast to develop a certified bio-epoxy resin. Along with this DMS is working on changing materials used in production to more environmentally sound options. In their Patented Carbon Wrap Technology they are replacing the Carbon with Basalt and looking into plant based cloth for lamination.
DMS is eliminating harmful chemicals such as acetone for cleaning applications and replacing with alcohol based cleaners and using water based paints as opposed to thinner based acrylic. Carbon filters are also used in lamination rooms to prevent contaminated air exiting the factory.
DMShapes is also using recycled paper packaging.
