Nano-clay * Thin hexagonal layers constituting particles have thousands of times the bonding area compared to calcium carbonate bonded with conventional points (spherical particles), resulting in a high bonding strength.
Utilizing Yamaha's proprietary material technology, we improved the NanoXcel material for the PWC hull developed and further upgraded the super lightweight material "NanoXcel 2". By sandwiching extremely small foamy glass particles in the gap between hexagonal layers constituting conventional nanoclay * particles, we realized further weight saving of material, achieving about 18% lighter weight than NanoXcel It is. Of course, strength and rigidity are secured to the same level as before, and repair is possible as well.
