Composites | Fiberglass | Sustainable Materials
A composite material is composed of at least two materials, combined to produce improved properties superior to those of the individual components, resulting in further lightweight strong resistant solutions.
New Anglia’s primary focus is on the regions unique strength in composites. The use of composites is growing exponentially, with the global market for composite products expected to reach $95bn globally by 2020, a 40% increase from 2014.
WHERE THE BUILT ENVIRONMENT MATTERS
The UK composites sector is worth over £1.6 billion, supporting the following supply chains; aerospace, defence, automotive, rail, construction, marine, oil & gas and renewables. With the UK composite supply chains increasing their adoption of more sustainable materials, this demand is estimated to grow.
Fiberglass is a more environmentally-friendly material that’s built to last. Fiberglass is glass reinforced plastic which can be made from recycled glass, making it a green, sustainable solution to previous materials. Using fiberglass has additional benefits, such as making buildings more energy-efficient.
Advanced materials are a sustainability innovation, with the use of lighter and stronger materials making products more durable and energy-efficient. Advanced materials help to address the growing consumption of our finite resources.
