Composite materials can provide structural support and appealing aesthetics.
Composite materials can also be utilized as structural elements in designs. Norplex-Micarta produces materials specifically designed to have low flammability, smoke generation, and toxicity (low FST). These composites reduce risks associated with other plastics in architectural applications.
In environments where moisture and corrosion are a concern, engineered composite materials with inherently low moisture uptake and excellent corrosion resistance provide engineers and designers with alternatives to costly coatings.
Finally, laminated products can be used for their aesthetic qualities. Produced in many different colors, and in an array of combinations, some even with unique surface textures, these materials offer architects, designers, and artists new material options to create interesting and functional pieces for industrial, commercial, and even residential applications.
