In both new construction projects and renovation work there are advantages to the use of plastic composite building products. They are durable, lightweight, corrosion resistant, strong and require little maintenance. These plastic materials obtain much of their versatility because they can be engineered to provide specific performance characteristics. Technically known as fiber-reinforced plastics or fiber-reinforced polymers (FRP), plastic composites generally comprise two components: a reinforcement fiber and a polymer binder (often called a matrix).
