*Definition:

Composite construction involves using two materials to build structures. Often, these materials are made from the same material, like concrete and steel, and they act as one unit to resist pressure and stress. A common example is a steel beam supporting a concrete slab. While the slab is designed to transfer weight to the beam, it also contributes to the load-bearing capacity of the beam.

Construction composite materials are made from plastic polymer resins and strong fibers. The materials have high specific strength and are lightweight. These qualities contribute to their low cost and reduced construction time. They can be molded into any shape, including curved shapes. Some are even waterproof. Construction composite materials are ideal for outdoor and marine applications. Building with construction composite materials is an excellent way to reduce the impact of construction on the environment. This material can be easily molded into any shape and can be used in different construction processes. It can replace wood, concrete, and metals, which have their limitations. It is also more environmentally friendly, since it can be recycled or made from bio-based materials.
