Versatile kayaks are used for sport and pleasure but also have fishing, diving, search and rescue, and other applications. Most kayak bodies, seats, and grab handles are made from a combination of plastics, including polyethylene because of its durable, flexible, waterproof, and chemical-resistant properties. Further, polyethylene can be repeatedly heated and cooled during the manufacturing process. Environmentally minded sports enthusiasts also enjoy the idea that some kayaks can be made from recycled plastics.
