Composite Advantage LLC (CA) has combined engineered fibreglass fabrics, durable resin and a patented internal core to produce a line of fibre reinforced polymer (FRP) pads and mats.
Unlike conventional composite pads and mats, CA's products are lightweight yet deliver superior strength and corrosion resistance because CA has built its new line based on its advanced vehicular bridge technology. As a result, CA pads and mats offer high performance foundations and support surfaces that minimize the amount of soil preparation required prior to starting development work.
CA's pads and mats are designed for use as temporary roadways, helicopter landing pads, outrigger pads or trench plates. The product line is also suited for applications at drilling sites, work staging areas and to provide support on soft ground for oversize vehicles.
CA's integrally moulded, light weight mats and pads also feature construction and performance benefits that include high strength (shear and crushing), durability, low maintenance, easy mobility, and quick installation time. A hard-wearing surface is added for long life and non-slip performance in wet conditions. CA can easily tailor its pads and mats to customer requirements.
Applications for composites in the sports and leisure sector will be showcased by various exhibitors at Composites Europe in Stuttgart, Germany, on 6-8 November.
The programme has been announced for the second Composites in Sport Conference and Exhibition, being held at Loughborough University, UK, on 3-4 October 2018.
