CCT - Cast Polymer Recertification

While aircraft, sports parts, yacht hulls and bridge decks can be the centerpieces of the composites industry, the fabrication of cast polymer bath and kitchen fixtures is a vital and lucrative segment. For over half a century, kitchen and bath manufacturers have been combining resins with a variety of fillers, additives, pigments and performance enhancers to create glossy, gorgeous products in many colors and patterns. The new home and remodeling markets depend on the variety of vanity tops, bathtubs, shower stalls, kitchen countertops and other components produced with composites.
