Composites for repair
Composites offer cost-effective means to repair, protect and/or strengthen structures made of steel, concrete or other materials.

tooling

Tooling
Composite parts are formed in molds, also known as tools. Tools can be made from virtually any material. The material type, shape and complexity depend upon the part and length of production run. Here's a short summary of the issues involved in electing and making tools.
