Technology

Oxbow ACE-TEC boards are built in France using proprietary thermoforming technology and a sustainable manufacturing process with zero emission, low energy consumption, no solvents and an extremely low rejection rate. With over 30 years of proven consistency and quality using these techniques, we know molding. The distinguishing features of Oxbow’s molded technologies can be summed up in two words - PRESSURE and PRECISION:

PRESSURE

All Oxbow ACE-TEC boards are made in molds that apply tons of pressure during the manufacturing process to bond the boards together perfectly, in one shot, over the whole surface.

PRECISION

In order to handle the significant pressures used during this process Oxbow boards are made in precision engineered aluminum molds that precisely replicate the original board shape to the nearest millimeter, ensuring an exact replica of the shaper’s original design every time.

This combination of PRESSURE with PRECISION is unique in the world of SUP board manufacturing, resulting in industry leading consistency and quality.
