Resin Systems Inc. have signed an agreement with Inline Fibreglass Ltd. to introduce RSI's Version resin in its manufacturing of composite material components for the building infrastructure industry.
Inline, the Canadian composite company servicing the construction industry, has recently completed the initial supply of composite curtain wall pressure plates manufactured with RSI’s Version resin. The Version resin pressure plates were installed in a Government of Canada office building being constructed in western Canada. Historically, these components have been manufactured using polyester or alloy.
Greg Pendura, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer of RSI, stated, ""Due to the universal move to become more energy efficient, polyurethane based Version resin building products will become an increasingly more attractive alternative due to their increased strength and resistance to temperature transfer"".
Inline is a global composite materials pultrusion fabrication company, specializing in ""thin wall"" pultrusion manufacturing.
