Composite Advantage Introduces New Line of FRP Pads and Mats for a Variety of Uses
DAYTON, Ohio - (May 30, 2008) - Composite Advantage LLC (CA) has combined engineered fiberglass fabrics, durable resin and a patented internal core to produce a line of Fiber Reinforced Polymer (FRP) pads and mats. Unlike conventional composite pads and mats, CA's products are lightweight yet deliver superior strength and corrosion resistance because CA has built its new line based on its advanced vehicular bridge technology. As a result, CA pads and mats offer high performance foundations and support surfaces that minimize the amount of soil preparation required prior to starting development work.
CA's pads and mats can be used as temporary roadways, helicopter landing pads, outrigger pads or trench plates. The product line is also suited for applications at drilling sites, work staging areas and to provide support on soft ground for oversize vehicles. The products deliver stable, portable access for heavy traffic and equipment to environmentally sensitive or challenging areas while protecting ground surfaces from permanent damage. In addition, the light weight, high strength products can be used as supports for building relocation.
CA's integrally molded, light weight mats and pads also feature construction and performance benefits that include high strength (shear and crushing), durability, low maintenance, easy mobility, and quick installation time. A hard-wearing surface is added for long life and non-slip performance in wet conditions. CA can easily tailor its pads and mats to customer requirements.
