PolyOne Launches New Hammerhead™ Marine Composites
December 13, 2017
Beyond weight reduction, Hammerhead panels can accelerate installation and labor productivity because they replace the typical wood, hand lay-up and vacuum assisted process with a consolidated, ready-to-install panel. Applications ranging from structural to cosmetic in areas such as bulkheads, decking, and cabinetry can benefit from the increased design flexibility these new panels generate.
The Hammerhead panels represent the latest technology introduced by PolyOne Advanced Composites. Launched in 2016 with the acquisitions of Gordon Composites and Polystrand, the company's Advanced Composites portfolio offers both thermoplastic and thermoset composite solutions with exceptional strength-to-weight ratios. With high strength, stiffness and dimensional stability, these specialty materials are ideal for the most demanding applications that span multiple end markets, including outdoor sports, aerospace, transportation, security and prosthetics.
"We are investing heavily in composite innovation, and these recent marine applications highlight how customers benefit from the next generation of metal, glass and wood replacement," said
"Innovation is the lifeblood of a specialty company," added
