Corrosion resistance was a key element for choosing composite material for this project. This characteristic will also help in ensuring low maintenance costs.
The specific weight of composites varies between 1.5 and 2.0 compared to 2.7 to 7.8 for aluminium and steel.
Though composite materials themselves are slightly more expensive than metals, combining properties such as insulation and weight savings often results in a cost effective product.
In general, fiber reinforced plastics outperform metals (e.g. steel and aluminium) in strength.
