When compared with other materials, such as steel, aluminum, and wood, composites are superior in nearly every category:
Composites are much more forgiving to pressure without suffering damage. They have ‘memory’ – the ability to return to their original shape much more than other materials.
When composites do become damaged, they are repairable – often in the field. Repairs are economical and fast when compared with other materials such as metal, plastic and wood.
A resistance to many chemical agents and other environmental assaults make composites a cost-effective choice. They are not damaged by salt spray or salt water and impervious to mold. Composites are not subject to corrosion or rot. Click here to view our floating docks which are a perfect example.
Ability to Accept Coatings, Paint and Adhesives
Composites readily accept coatings, such as adhesives. They may be manufactured to accept paint, which means that you can camouflage or decorate them according to your needs and desires. Click here to see some great examples.
Speaking of Color….
Your choice of color may also be ‘molded-in’ at the time of manufacture, ensuring a uniform color throughout.
Any strength can be built into a composite – and unlike steel and aluminum, the reinforcement can be positioned exactly where it’s needed.
Nearly any design can be created using composites. They are easily molded to your specifications. With composites, your design can be precisely replicated.
Our ability to create your product with composites is limited only by your imagination! Intricate designs and applications can be achieved with composites – offering flexible design and innovation possibilities.
Composites are typically only 1/4 the weight of steel, and are 1/3 lighter than aluminum. You’ll see the cost savings in man-hours (handling requires fewer workers), and lower fuel consumption.
Composites are excellent insulators, retaining their shape and strength in fluctuating temperatures – both hot and cold.
Reduced Materials Costs
Because we precisely mold your composite product, there is virtually no waste – meaning you don’t pay for material that you don’t need.
Low electrical conductivity and inherent fire retardant properties make composites a safe and effective covering for electrical components.
Dimensional Accuracy and Tight Tolerances
Composites can be built with amazing dimensional accuracy and tight tolerances. We manufacture to your specifications – in many applications, absolutely precise uniform thickness is required for the functionality of your equipment. Tight tolerances can be achieved with composites which are not possible with other materials.
Your productivity is determined by cost of design, assembly, safety, resistance to breakage, and longevity of components. Fewer work stoppages to replace components or attend to safety issues result in higher productivity and greater cost savings.
