Corrosion Resistant
Fiberglass reinforced thermo set laminates have been the clear choice for corrosive environments for the past 50 years. Given the temperature and chemical environment we can recommend the right materials for the most critical applications. Corrosion resistance is often the primary reason for choosing Corrosion Composites.

High Strength Yet Light Weight
Composites have a higher strength-to-weight ratio than steel. FRP laminate is a light weight structural material that allows the designer to create large structures without the use of ribs or supports. Fiberglass duct systems require fewer hangers and supports than equivalent metal or PVC systems.

Toughness

Laminates can be designed to withstand impact, abrasion, cold and heat. We can also build in flexibility or stiffness when required.

Non-Conductive
Unlike metal, fiberglass reinforced plastic is inherently non-conductive. Fiberglass can be made to be conductive for some applications by adding carbon materials to the laminate.
Minimal Maintenance
Our FRP tanks, ducts, hoods, stack, pipes, etc. are built to last. With 50 years of fabricating experience we have had very few requests for replacements. When repairs or modifications are required it is an easy process.

Material Choices
Resin selection is based on the requirements for each project. Knowing the temperature, chemical environment and physical requirements such as wind, snow and seismic loadings will help us choose the right resin. In addition the reinforcement materials and the laminate sequence will vary for each type of job.
