ZPM signs deal with X-Tender Boats


Zyvex Performance Materials formed an agreement with X-Tender Boats to supply Arovex, ZPM's next generation carbon nanotube-enhanced prepreg carbon fiber, for the boatbuilder's new line of yacht tenders.


"Our goal at X-Tender is to make the ultimate yacht tender. In order to do that, we need the best in materials, and Arovex is the most advanced and highest performing prepreg carbon fiber available today," said Jean-Marc LeRoy, president of Seattle-based X-Tender Boats, in a statement.

"Making the boats as light as possible will make it easier to lift and store as a tender while providing greater performance," he added.
