Plastics — Used in Every Walk of Life

Plastics, composites, and engineered materials are used for everything from:

  • Packaging to keep food fresh and frozen food free from freezer-burn
  • Construction materials
  • The hulls of aeronautical vehicles
  • Gaskets for HVAC applications
  • Light-weight automobiles
  • Medical devices, prosthetics, and biomed innovations

What Does Globe Composite Solutions Make with Plastics?

thermoplastics gearboxes-metalNcomposite_640x426.jpgGlobe Composite Solutions actually makes composite materials or engineered plastics, materials made from plastics imbued with properties from other materials, like carbon-fiber or nano-silver, to create a new advanced material that is more than mere plastic ever could be alone.  These thermoplastic composite materials can have properties, like far greater tensile strength, stretching up to five-hundred times longer than plain plastic. Composites can be made with properties to ward off germs and infections; unlike simple plastic, composites can be made to be antimicrobial or antibacterial.
