Canadian composites are helping people upgrade their boats

Canada is a country that’s producing more and more products from composites. This includes everything from airplane wings to composite decking materials. However, one type of Canadian composite product type that may have been overlooked is composite sailboat upgrades. A few of the composite sailboat upgrades made in Canada Composites have a long history in Read More…

Corrosion Resistance of Composite Materials Makes Them Ideal for Boat Fittings

The marine environment is an extremely corrosive one thanks to the highly corrosive effects of salt water, so it seems logical that composite materials are a great fit for maritime applications because of their natural corrosion resistance. In spite of this and other benefits of composite fittings, many boats are still using metal fittings that Read More…

Composites Increase Corrosion Resistance in Shipping Containers

Composites have a growing number of applications to help improve corrosion resistance in infrastructure projects, aerospace products and others. One of the biggest industries where corrosion is a major problem is the marine shipping industry. Traditional all-metal shipping containers have corrosion issues in saltwater environments, and composite containers can provide a much greater level of Read More…

Composites and Marine Infrastructure: Protecting Our Piers

One of the most important pieces of marine infrastructure is pier protection systems. Such systems are designed to protect bridge piers, electrical tower piers and other in-water pier structures from being struck by boats or barges. Pier protection systems are essential factors in ensuring the safety and longevity of in-water pier structures, and these systems Read More…

Marine Infrastructure Benefits from Composites in Docks

Like other parts of the American infrastructure, the marine infrastructure has the challenges that go part in parcel with aging. Decades of neglect have led to crumbling concrete, rotting wood and rusting metal in many of the marinas, ports and shipping facilities on U.S. shorelines. In order to upgrade marine infrastructure and provide businesses with Read More…
