Ashland to provide builders with hands-on education about composites at the 2015 Greenbuild
November 11, 2015
Ashland Performance Materials continues its initiative to help educate architects, engineers and builders through its sponsorship of the composite building materials website CompositeBuild.com. For the sixth consecutive year, Ashland will highlight some of the many benefits of composite materials during the 2015 Greenbuild* International Conference and Expo. The event, to be held November 18-19 in Washington, D.C., is the world's largest conference and expo dedicated to "green" building.
CompositeBuild.com provides users with a convenient resource to research and learn about composite building products, and provides links to fabricators from whom users can get more detailed information on specific composite materials.
Ashland’s 2015 CompositeBuild.com exhibit will provide attendees with hands-on experiences that demonstrate key composite properties, such as corrosion resistance, high strength to weight, low thermal conductivity and design flexibility.
"The goal of the CompositeBuild.com site is to help educate the design and building community about the many ways that composites are being used in commercial and residential construction," said Bob Moffit, Ashland Performance Materials product manager for the Building and Construction market. "The website provides case studies of composites in building applications and outlines the performance and environmental benefits."
