Composites are the combination of two or more different materials, making them stronger and better.
Fibre + Resin
Composites consist of two components – fibres and resins. It’s this combination that gives composites their unique and differentiating properties.
Fuze Composites vs. Steel
How do our composites stack up against steel? See the table for a direct comparison. Fuze composites are ultimately faster, cheaper and safer than steel alternatives.
|Susceptible to ongoing corrosion||Yes||No|
|UV degradation issues||No||No|
|Rapid engineering (within hours)||No||Yes|
|Repairs live, live leaks or over clamps||No||Yes|
|No shut down, no hot work||No||Yes|
|Time to complete installation on site||100%||50%|
|Indicative total project cost||100%||40%|
|Class approved (ABS, Lloyds, DNV)||Yes||Yes|
|Inspection options (wide range, commercially available)||Yes||Yes|
There are three types of composite manufacturing processes, each with its own benefits.
people + technology
Fuze ensure the reliable and continued operation of critical assets by combining sophisticated composite technology with complex engineering-style thinking.
