Construction & Glazing

construction plasticsConstruction applications are one of the most popular uses for plastics, second only to packaging.  Plastics are a cost-effective material for construction applications due largely to their long, productive product life, little to no maintenance requirements, insulation properties, corrosion resistance and high strength to weight properties.

Due to their durability and long product life, plastics used in construction applications are highly rated in environmental assessments because of their energy efficiency  When compared to alternative products, plastics perform better and are more economical to use.

  • Plastics are used for products as diverse as plumbing fixtures and pipes, flooring, protective shields, insulation, seals, roofing, lighting and wall coverings.  
  • Plastic films and laminates are used for glazing and films on windows and doors to provide protection from sunlight and UV light.  
  • Modern composites can be molded to mimic different materials and are manufactured in a wide range of colors.  They are increasingly used for mouldings and exterior siding.  
  • Industrial and commercial uses include shatter and bullet-proof protectors and ESD shielding films.
