Plastics Today: Rapidblocs tune whitewater park to precise specifications

Boats aren’t the only plastics featuring in water sports.

The blocks can channel water to precise specifications, and, because of the lightweight plastic-block construction, the course can easily be reconfigured for more recreational use.
