Porcher Sport, the Sports and Leisure Division of Porcher Industries and a leader in high-performance fabrics for aerial and nautical sports, has unveiled new innovations for the outdoor equipment and apparel sectors at OutDoor by ISPO 2019 in Munich this week.

Innovations ranged as wide as new thermoplastic insoles for customised footwear to a new highly durable tent fabric.

Porcher Sport’s innovative thermoplastic insoles for footwear are an example of the company’s new lightweight composite materials that are thermoformable at low temperatures whilst providing a high level of stiffness. Other applications include shin guards, splints, ski pole grips, cycling frames and saddles.

The new insole is thermoformable at 80ºC and becomes extremely pliable when immersed in boiling water, in order to form to the shape of the shoe it’s being used in, for a highly customised fit. The lightweight product is said to offer advanced comfort and is ideal for hiking, skiing and other rugged outdoor activities.
