Strength through Innovation

From the automotive industry to aerospace, composites are everywhere. These combinations of components – sometimes referred to as FRP or fiber-reinforced polymers – boast countless advantages over materials such as steel since they do not rust and are extremely durable yet lightweight, making them ideal for airplanes, storage tanks, windmill blades and much more.
