USD 임페리얼(Imperial) Turquoise Edition // Grindhouse Sk8s / 어그레시브 인라인

USD Imperial Boot description:

The USD Carbon is a dream skate for many skaters, yet it is also a high class product made of the most expensive materials used on an aggressive skate.
With the desire to make this new skate available to a lower budget we took the time to talk to companies about making special plastic blends that could serve to re-create the Carbon effect at a more affordable price.
After two meetings with DuPont we were told that they had the perfect plastic for us:
DuPont™ Hytrel® TPC-ET Thermoplastic polyester elastomer;
Hytrel® - A thermoplastic and elastomer in one.
Hytrel® thermoplastic polyester elastomers provide the flexibility of rubber, the strength of plastic and the processibility of thermoplastics.
Hytrel® is also available in a full range of Shore D hardness (30D to 82D). Special grades are heat stabilized, flame retardant and blow molded. Concentrates include black pigments, UV protection additives, hydrolysis resistant additives, heat stabilizers and flame retardants.

NEW - Hytrel® RS renewable sourced thermoplastic elastomers can help reduce environmental footprint without compromising performance.
New grades containing 35% to 65% of renewable sourced material are in development and early tests show they grant the same performance and processing characteristics of original Hytrel®.

Ideal specs:

Hytrel® is ideal for parts requiring excellent flex fatigue and broad use temperature. It resists tearing, flex-cut growth, creep and abrasion. It offers strength and stiffness plus outstanding toughness while resisting hydrocarbons and many other fluids. Hytrel® can be processed easily by conventional thermoplastic processes, such as injection molding, blow molding, calendaring, rotational molding, extrusion and meltcasting.
We made our first tests with this material injection into a one piece plastic skate and tested it, advancing to test a variety of hardness until we found the perfect one.
We also redesigned the internal structure making a fully integrated cuff with built-in flex and support zones. The resulting product is made of a new patented construction that grantees satisfaction on all demands of an aggressive skate.
