Fiber composites combine characteristics

which are considered incompatible in case of using conventional materials.  Composites represent advantages over conventional materials such as metals, plastics, wood and concrete.

 

Key features and benefits of the material:

  • Unrivalled lightweight construction

  • potential Highly resitant to chemicals and corrosion

  • High strength, therefore high mechanical stress components possible

  • Elasticity, thus self-supporting structures achievable

  • Electrically and thermally insulating

  • Non-magnetic, non-sparking

  • Energy absorbing, high impact resistance

  • Significantly longer service life than metals

  • UV and weather resistant

  • Very good dimensional stability compared to thermoplastics

  • Fire resistant if necessary and other application specific settings 

 

 

These industries use fiber composite materials successfully:

  • Industrial plants

  • Chemical plants

  • Rail Industry

  • Commercial Vehicles

  • Agriculture and Farming

  • Food Industry

  • Environmental engineering

  • Energy supply

  • Electrical Engineering

  • Water Management

  • Shipbuilding / Boats

  • Architecture and Construction
