Paua was initially born out of the frustration of sports equipment being damaged in transit and since 2016 has been used in lightweight, durable, and highly protective bags and cases for the sports and outdoor industries. Combinations of the Paua Pro and Paua foam materials were initially used to build first of their kind, hinged and foldable protective cases and bags in a patented technology advancement. Since then Paua has been a trusted material choice for protection and performance by a range of brands and customers from sports enthusiasts through to world champions, with products still in circulation that have covered 300,000 miles plus.
Performance, Strength, Durability
Paua materials provide highly protective, lightweight and durable alternatives to bags and cases made from traditional nylon and foam materials. Tear and penetration resistant, Paua is the ultimate lightweight protection material that is both water resistant and fully recyclable.
Paua Pro and Extreme in our thicker sheet form have been used to replace carbon fibre or metal in numerous sports and outdoor applications such as bike parts and motorsport accessories.
The performance of Paua materials has been independently tested and proven.
This testing, in accordance with stringent industry standards, has verified the inimitable strength, durability and protective qualities of Paua packaging materials technology.
