materials used in the marine industry deliver high strength, reduced weight, excellent corrosion resistance, dimensional stability and improved cost performance. Composites materials also surpass traditional materials in offering enhanced aesthetics and reduced maintenance/replacement costs.
A full range of reinforcement products for the marine industry's composite needs is available including knitted or woven fabrics, gun Roving
and mats. A wide variety of weights and configurations are available for marine construction.
Owens Corning's Composite Solutions Business also offers reinforcement solutions to the challenges facing the marine industry in reducing manufacturing costs and lowering/eliminating Resin
emissions to comply with industry standards and regulations.
Primary applications of composites for marine use include construction of boat hulls, stringers and decks.
