Polin Introduces World's First-Ever Fully Transparent Composites Waterslide

11/12/18


As an official R&D center and a pioneer in the field of innovative advancement and application of closed-molded manufacturing technology in waterslide development, Polin Waterparks continues to focus on innovation in composites manufacturing technologies. 

The core of Polin Waterpark's R&D strategy is its concentration on financial, customer and process perspectives with particular emphasis on learning, dissemination and innovation. Polin proved its dedication to these aspects of R&D when the company pioneered the advancement and application of light resin transfer molding (LRTM) in waterslide manufacturing. In 2006, it converted 100 percent of its fiberglass production to LRTM, a first in the aquatic-attractions industry.

This development raised the bar for the entire waterpark industry. Since then, Polin has regularly introduced new innovations, including the development of special lighting effects, patterned and transparent composites, sound-integrated components, wooden and metallic finishes, three-dimensional waterslides and unique slide designs. 

As a result of Polin's dedication to innovation, the industry meets the first fully transparent composites waterslide, satisfying the need for a better quality, functional, price-advantaged solution compared to the transparent acrylic components that are typically seen in cruise projects. Ali Cansun, Director of R&D said: "As a pioneer of the amusement industry, we are proud to announce Glassy Waterslide which will make dynamic difference in the industry."
