LIGHTER - STRONGER

 

Based in rugged British Columbia, Canada, Aluula Composites was founded by a team of highly experienced chemists and engineers who are passionate about exploring the outdoors.

 From season-to-season we push our limits out on the ocean, rivers, mountains and trails, and our experience in these extreme environments has fired our passion to make a material that is lighter and stronger.

Only the Best

THE FUTURE OF COMPOSITES

Aluula has effectively superseded conventional coated and laminated woven fabrics with a new innovative, ultra strong, composite material. As a result, we’ve created composites that are highly tear resistant, stretch resistant and easy to fabricate into a multitude of products.

 

These new dimensionally stabilized multilayer materials are comprised of unique covalently bonded co-polymer layers to create composites with great weight reduction, delivering incredible resistance to tearing and tear propagation.

BEST PRODUCT

Aluula is very proud to have been voted BEST PRODUCT of the soft equipment category at this Years ISPO. Thank you so much to the jury members, ISPO MUNICH and all ISPO Textrends team for this honour.

Eco Conscious

GREEN FROM THE OUTSET

As a Canadian company, we’re surrounded on all sides by breathtaking natural beauty, and are ever-conscious of the environmental challenges we all face as a global community.

We decided from the outset to develop methods that are not hazardous to our environment and our planet. 

  • No solvents are used during Aluula processing.
  • No off-gassing is produced in the manufacturing process.
  • Minimal waste is created in the manufacturing process.
  • Aluula Composites are stronger and lighter than traditional woven/laminated fabrics. We use less raw materials and achieve more.
  • Our products last longer, which means less in the landfill, more cost savings for you.

POSSIBILITIES

The incredible properties of Aluula composites allow for a near-endless spectrum of products that can be made lighter and stronger by moving away from traditional textiles.
