Building

The benefits associated with reinforced polymer composites are: reduced weight leading to a reduction in the self weight of the structure as well as improved structural performance to mass ratio.

Unique load introduction capabilities gives high structural resistance to high dynamic loads such as earthquakes are is substantially improved. The weight advantage will reduce labor and heavy equipment costs and could also facilitate the design of buildings that can float in regions exposed to flooding on saturated ground.

The weight advantage can be further utilized to facilitate shipping from a central manufacturing place, as well as "do-it-yourself" constructions. Polymer composites can also offer the potential for improved thermal isolation.
