Invented by the Esquif International team, T-Formex was created as a replacement to Royalex, a product once distributed by PolyOne.
At the time, canoes produced by Esquif International (then known as Esquif Canoes) were composed of 80% Royalex. When PolyOne went out of business in 2014, Esquif Canoes saw an opportunity to create a material better adapted to the needs of its clientele.
According to the creators, T-Formex is 10% lighter and 20 times more resistant than Royalex.
Arpin Canoe Restigouche now carries a variety of Esquif International’s T-Fromex canoes that are available for sale (see our Contacts sections for more details).
