Polinox has entered into an agreement with MVC, one of the main composites moulders in Brazil, to join the list of suppliers of raw materials for a project budgeted at approximately US$650million.

The project sees the construction of 1400 day care centres in nine states for Proinfância, a programme promoted by the Brazilian Department of Education intended for the acquisition of equipment to the public school system.

By December, work will have started on approximately 200 of these day care centres, which should be completed by the end of 2014. According to Gilmar Lima, General Director of MVC, the total consumption of composites in this project will be 45tons, divided between continuous lamination processes (24,000), pultrusion (18,000) and RTM Light (3,000).

“Polinox’s choice is due to several factors, including the partnership with MVC and its attitude towards the composites market over the past few years, in addition to the quality and competitiveness of its products,” he says.

Roberto Pontifex, Director of Polinox, points out that MVC is the composite moulder who pushed for the material to be part of the major construction project.“It is always a source of pride to know that our products are specified by a company such as MVC.”
