Rotational molding (rotomolding) uses a high temperature oven to melt polyethylene powder in a large rotatingmetal mold.
This process produces a complete kayak hull and deck in a single step. Our rotomolded polyethylene
models offer paddlers the ability to enjoy many of the unique benefits of our designs at an economical price.
We’ve taken rotomolding to the next level with our own high-tech process controls to produce the lightest possible rotomolded
kayaks. We use only linear high density polyethylene in all of our rotomolded models to maximize stiffness without sacrificing
impact strength. Our polyethylene maintains its integrity over a broad temperature range and has added stabilizers giving
it increased protection from harmful ultraviolet rays and oxidation. Our rotomolded kayaks are affordable, ultra tough, highly
durable and will hold up to more significant abuse compared to composite constructions.
Originally developed by the aerospace industry to manufacture strong, ultra-light components, our composite lamination uses a
high-pressure vacuum to eliminate any excess resin, which improves strength and decreases weight. We also utilize 3-D non-woven core materials
in specific places to reinforce and strengthen areas without adding any substantial weight. This hands-on labor-intensive process results in
lightweight, extraordinarily tough kayaks with an exquisite finish. All Current Designs composite kayaks have composite seams joining the deck and hull.
This stronger and lighter technique of seaming was formerly available for an additional charge. Now, composite seams are our standard of excellence on all composite kayaks.
