Building the future in plastics

Building and construction are often resource-heavy activities. Today, engineering plastics can replace conventional materials in a wide variety of applications – improving performance while reducing environmental impact.

Our broad portfolio of materials cover a broad range of applications, from building materials to industrial lifting and pulling gears, and from road marking to machinery parts. Our composite materials are used to manufacture the massive façade panels that front office buildings –withstanding wear from extreme temperatures and harsh weather to extend the life of the panels. Our bio-based engineering plastics improve efficiency in window insulating profiles, and create an excellent barrier for roofing membranes.

Let’s talk about how our materials can improve your building and construction applications.

A scientific approach to building solutions

Our dedicated teams work closely with our customers to look at the entire process of developing new parts and components – whether it is a case of metal replacement, or developing solutions that are stronger, safer and more effective. Our methodical approach extends to every step of the process, from design and material performance to production and compliance.

  • Strength, stiffness & fatigue

    As car manufacturers continuously focus on reducing weight to improve fuel efficiency, replacing metal parts with plastic remains a key challenge.

  • Life cycle assessment

    When we talk about Bright Science, Brighter Living, one of the core ideas we’re expressing is our concern for sustainability. That’s why we have integrated green design into our business.

  • Degradation & Stability

    One of the most challenging environments we work in is under the hood of a car. The parts used in these applications are subjected to high temperatures, broad temperature ranges and corrosive chemicals.
