Uses for Composite Materials
When Are Composites Better?
Every job and situation has certain material requirements. To be certain, traditional building materials have their place. But in extreme, demanding, corrosive, and stringent environments, fiberglass reinforced polymers (FRP) are a smart choice. When other materials fail or fall short, FRP thrive, outperform, and endure.
When durability, design flexibility, dimensional stability, strength, weight, and chemical resistance matter, FRP are choice materials. When you need a cost-effective solution; a composite product with fire and smoke retardance, specialized coatings, or abrasion resistance, FRP is the clear choice. When striking a balance between toughness and finesse are paramount, when precision counts– composites are the go-to material.
Performance, Endurance, Strength
FRP has the strength of steel at a fraction of the weight. It’s resistant to insects, corrosion, mold and mildew. It can be formed into countless profiles to fit your specs and industry requirements. Decades later when those other materials need to be replaced, it will still have plenty of life.
Regardless of what you’re searching for; FRP pipe, ductwork, tanks, vessels, mist eliminators, panels, structural products, or premium custom fiberglass components – we have the technology and the know-how to execute and deliver. From small projects to large complex structures-we offer the gamut of precision composite products.
Versatility, Ruggedness, Constructability
While conventional materials can be cost-competitive, they are not always cost-effective. On the other hand, FRP are a cost-effective material choice in many circumstances, especially when one considers the many functions, benefits, and services they provide over time. In short, no other material can match their versatility, ruggedness or constructability. Wood rots, steel rusts, and aluminum dents; the superior choice are composites.
Composites provide high function- they deliver good dimensional stability or structure, and other properties such as light weight, strength, toughness, damage tolerance, fatigue and fracture resistance, notch sensitivity, impact absorbency, and general durability. They are desirable for many applications in a wide range of industries.
