Plastic: a construction super-material!

Traditionally known to use wood, steel and concrete, the construction industry is now turning increasingly toward plastics. And with good reason!

Since its creation in 1870, plastic has not stopped progressing and offering increasingly effective solutions. Highly durable, low maintenance and surprisingly visually appealing, plastic materials are where it’s at. The growing trend in construction is to use plastic instead of wood, metal and glass.

Think about it: plastic materials are lightweight (ease of transport, good bearing capacity) and easy to bend and shape. They are also completely waterproof, are corrosion- and wear-resistant, don’t rot and are excellent thermal and electric insulators. Neither wood nor metal offer all these advantages. Contractors save money while offering clients a host of advantages. Win-win!

Replacing wood in concrete formwork or tanks perfectly illustrate the advantages of using plastic. Reusable and resistant, this super-material offers contractors significant savings.

Construction applications:

  • Tanks and troughs
  • Concrete molds and formwork
  • Spacers
  • Building signage
  • Alternative to glass

 Other, lesser-known applications:

  • Custom manufacturing
  • Grease traps
  • Filtration systems
  • Lighting systems
  • Electrically non-conductive materials and structures
