In partnership with

Building and Infrastructure: the high-potential market for composites

Thanks to their intrinsic properties, composites are gaining popularity in building, construction, and infrastructures. Corrosion resistance, strength and low weight are allowing new solutions to push the boundaries of what is feasible: drastically reduced installation time, gigantic parts, new concrete formulas that emit less CO2 in applications where steel can’t be used. Composites are bringing about a paradigm shift.
