Composite engineering and construction of GRP Cooling Towers

The choice of composite material for producing these towers is straightforward as composite material provides chemical and corrosion resistance and requires minimal maintenance over time. 

why are composites used here?

Chemical/corrosion resistance
Composite materials are resistant to a lot of chemical products such as acids, hydroxides, crude oil, etc. Corrosion resistance against salt and seawater is excellent.

Low maintenance
Steel structures typically require periodic maintenance such as conservation and paint systems to prevent corrosion. Composites are not susceptible to corrosion, resulting in lower Life-cycle costs.
