The IMAGINE Act champions infrastructure composites

Infrastructure composites have been around for decades now, but the U.S. government has been slow to adopt these materials in infrastructure projects. However, the recent introduction of the IMAGINE Act may be a sign that this is about to change. How the IMAGINE Act promotes infrastructure composites Composite materials have become available for a variety Read More…

Composites support military communications at US base

Composites are probably most famously used by the United States military in aerospace applications like the B-2 Spirit stealth bomber and the F-22 Raptor fighter jet. However, composites are also playing an unsung role in rehabilitating the corrosion-plagued support infrastructure of the military, especially in new communications towers. Benefits offered by composite military communications towers Read More…

Composites tackle the problem of in-ground pipe corrosion

Composites have become prominent in many industries due to their high corrosion resistance. In the past three years especially, composite pipe liners have emerged as a fix for the corroding in-ground water and sewer pipes across the United States. The benefits of using composite pipe liners to fix in-ground pipe corrosion All across the country, Read More…

Corrosion-Resistant Composites: Benefits for Semi-Trailers

Corrosion resistance is one benefit to composites bring to many transportation applications. Composites are used in everything from aircraft to ships.

Why We Should Use Corrosion-Resistant Composite Fasteners

Nuts, bolts and screws are common fasteners that must deal with many types of corrosion due to their use in a variety of applications. However, composite materials have the ability to take corrosion out of the equation for these products. Benefits of corrosion-resistant composite fasteners Fasteners are important to the world because they literally hold 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…
