Ashland Inc. (Dublin, Ohio, USA) announced on Nov. 17 the launch of CompositeBuild.com, a website that connects composite manufacturers with architects, engineers, designers and builders. This new tool provides a method for learning about and specifying composite building materials for various commercial and residential building projects.
“We introduced this website to help connect those who specify and source building products with composite manufacturers who participate in that market,” said Ted Harris, president, Ashland Performance Materials. “This effort truly assists designers, architects and engineers with finding composite material solutions for their creative building plans.”
The site is open to all composite building materials manufacturers. Fabricators of composite building materials or their distributors can be listed on the Web site free of charge. The interactive design of the Web site allows visitors to move through a residential or commercial building and find areas of construction where composite materials are a good fit.
