As the name suggests, composite materials consist of at least two different products, usually a resin and a reinforcing agent, which give the final product dimensional stability and strength. Common applications are the construction of boats and yachts, industrial tanks, swimming pools, light aircraft, sports equipment, etc. The latest trends in this market have caused a boom in appliances in wind generators and in construction. Generally, advanced composite materials can replace much lighter metals while maintaining the necessary structural strength. Compared to metals and concretes, composite materials also offer some additional advantages such as easier processing and repair, less corrosion and lower maintenance costs.
Besides solvents and other basic chemicals, Caldic supplies various types of resins and fibres, as well as catalysts.
