Composites make light work of modular housing ... - Materials Today1 Nov 2012 ... The major components used in the house are pultruded glass reinforced composite modules which can be rapidly assembled into a wide variety of low-rise buildings, without metal fastenings. (See Startlink composite house built in UK.) Innovative composites International Inc (ICI) produces modular homes using composite sandwich panels constructed from glass fibre reinforced polypropylene skins and a honeycomb core. The company has housing projects under ...

Composite panels enable fast house construction - Materials Today4 Sep 2010 ... Using its own technology, InnoVida produces Fiber composite Panels (FCPs) which are used to build energy-efficient structures without the need for concrete, wood or steel and with significant savings in cost and time to build. A standard house can be constructed from prefabricated elements in 1-3 days. The FCPs are load-bearing, insulating panels with structural skins made of high-strength E-glass fibre fabrics impregnated with a fire-resistant polymeric epoxy resin ...

Composites as High Performance Building Solutions - Green ...20 Jan 2017 ... The size, shape, proportional weight/volume, and material of the reinforcing fibers typically determine the plastic composite's mechanical properties, such as stiffness and strength. The type and proportion ... often used as structural sheathing, flooring, and roofing in residential construction, oriented-strand board (OSB) is made by coating strands of wood with plastic resin and then pressing them together at high temperature and pressure to form panels. By orienting the ...

Cob (material) - WikipediaCob, cobb or clom (in Wales) is a natural building material made from subsoil, water, fibrous organic material (typically st), and sometimes lime. The contents of subsoil naturally vary, and if it does not contain the right mixture it can be modified with sand or clay. Cob is fireproof, resistant to seismic activity, and inexpensive. It can be used to create artistic, sculptural forms, and its use has been revived in recent years by the natural building and sustainability movements. In technical ...

Home Made Composites (HomMaCom) - Composites in daily lifecomposite materials are very attractive for all kinds of sports activities. In many sports applications, weight reduction is the primary reason to move to composites. One of the first sports disciplines where composites were applied, was the Formula One. Thanks to their high energy absorption for a very low weight, composites are widely used in all crash protection parts in Formula One race cars. All Formula One race cars have a carbon fibre monocoque structure that protects the driver ...
