Epoxy and Phenolic Systems for Building and Construction Composites

We are committed to collaborating with customers to find new ways lightweight composites can solve architectural infrastructure and construction challenges. Benefits of building with composites include:

  • Lesser weight
  • Durability
  • Corrosion resistance
  • Environmental suitability
  • Ease of fabrication
  • Multi-functionality, such as integrated thermal insulation
  • Design freedom
  • Ease of maintenance
