Titanal sheet for skis and snowboard.
Titanal sheet for use in layup.
It is usually used for bulking up a ride, for damping of vibrations and increased flexural and torsional stiffness.
Thickness is 0.4mm
Width is 310mm
Price is pr 10cm length, you get one piece when you order more.
It has to be cleaned up, just before lamination using denutered alcohol/ethanol, or possibly Aceton, then let it dry well. Please do this on your own responsibility, as any incorrect procedure can lead to delamination! Titanal is anodized with phosphoric acid.
Manufacturer suggests to sand the Titanal just before layup, but this might be bad idea as it will oxidize quickly, so if sanding, do it just before gluing. Testing is advised!
Be careful when using non symmetric layup, as titanal is temperature sensitive if you only use it on top or bottom you will get larger temperature sensitivity. Best to keep it closer to the core!
Dont flex the ski/snb untill the epoxy is fully cured!
Tip: Chances of delamination increases if you have titanal directly on smooth surface, like wood core or some plastic. It helps to have thin layer of fabric inbetween (like 1 oz glass or wide VDS).
