The main feature of a composite material

is that it is made up of two or more constituent materials that when combined create a material with properties that differ from the individual elements.

PRODUCTS

The following are some of the advantages of composite materials:

  • LIGHTWEIGHT
  • HIGH STRENGTH
  • DURABLE
  • DIMENSIONAL
  • STABILITY
  • COMPEX SHAPES
  • RADAR TRANSPARENT
  • X-RAY TRANSPARENT
  • SOUND DAMPENING
  • RESISTANCE TO CORROSION
  • AESTHETIC FINISH

Typical engineered composite materials include:

  • Reinforced concrete
  • Masonry
  • Plywood
  • Reinforced plastics (fiberglass)
  • Ceramic matrix composites
  • Metal matrix composites
  • Other advanced composite materials

There are numerous reasons why new material may be preferred. Materials that are less expensive, lighter, stronger, or more durable than common materials are typical examples.

Buildings, bridges, structures, swimming pool panels, boat hulls, racing car bodies, shower stalls, bathtubs, storage tanks, imitation granite, cultured marble sinks, countertops, and general automotive applications are all common uses for composites. Also in spacecraft and aircraft design.

Our expertise in the composites industry is in modern technologies such as RTM, light-RTM, vacuum infusion, direct infusion, and vacuum bagging applications. In addition, we provide cost-efficient solutions for hand lamination, spray-up lamination, winding, and pultrusion applications.

The Composites business unit acts as a local sales arm and a partner to leading international raw material producers, providing active sales, marketing, and distribution services in the agreed-upon market areas. We have several production units, which allows us to provide customized products closer to the final customer markets.
