Is Your Lab Sad about the Irritation and Expense of Carbon?
June 25, 2012
Use Coyote Design's new "composite" in your laminations. Made from basalt (volcanic rock), this material creates an inert and safe material that causes much less itch than carbon. Our proprietary braid was designed for prosthetic and orthotic use, and is similar in weight to carbon, but less rigid for a more flexible, comfortable sockets. Basalt is also tougher than carbon or fiberglass to withstand impact and resist delaminating, and it is less expensive. Available in 4", 6", and 8" braid, as well as reinforcement rope or sheet fabric.
