The specific weight of composites varies between 1.5 and 2.0 compared to 2.7 to 7.8 for aluminium and steel.
By combining functions such as strength and insulation in one product, a composite solution is often more cost effective than the sum of traditional solutions.
Typical GRP lambda values are 1, compared to 50 for steel and 237 for aluminium, which results in excellent insulation properties.
Slender constructions and seamless façades are examples of aesthetics driven design. These type of structures are impossible to construct with traditional materials.
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.
