What is Armerlite?
Armerlite is a composite material composed of an interwoven glass fiber with polypropylene plastic. The material is layered in a canoe mold, vacuum bagged and cooked in a large oven where the polypropylene and fiber melt together to create a solid bond. The result is a very strong and abrasion resistant canoe. This may sound familiar to some of you, as Twin Tex. Armerlite and Twin Tex are not exactly the same. They do share the fact that they both are made of an interwoven glass fiber, and polypropylene; however Armerlite has a different weave and material composition ratio, a slightly different manufacturing process, and a different core in comparison to Twin Tex. Armerlite has created and perfected the best thermo composite material for making canoes on the market today, and have perfected the manufacturing process of this material over the course of 10 years in Germany.
