GeoBubble™ is a material purposely designed to alleviate stresses during the moulding of the bubble profile. The geometric bubble allows the material to be perfectly formed resulting in an air cell with a more uniform thickness, minimising the residual stress within the polymer structure. In collaboration with leading Universities together with in-house development team, the focus was to create high performance materials that meet pool owners requirements.
To understand the science of GeoBubble™, it helps to look at the traditional bubble material used for pool covers. Those traditional bubbles have several inherent weaknesses in their design, including thin points and high residual stress areas.
Swimming pool covers are typically exposed to high levels of Ultra Violet (UV) radiation and chemical attack. GeoBubble™ is a material designed specifically for this environment, making the cover more resistant to these attacks and enabling a longer lifespan.
