Adopting a multimaterial competence is crucial to meet different customer needs and project requirements. Utilizing materials like concrete, polymer concrete, polyethylene (PE), glass reinforced plastic (GRP), and stainless steel, we ensure durability, corrosion resistance, and adaptability. Concrete for strength, polymer concrete for flexibility, and polyethylene and GRP for lightness — all materials address specific demands. This approach guarantees customized, sustainable, and high-performing solutions across various applications.
Polymer concrete offers exceptional mechanical properties, chemical resistance, and durability. By replacing traditional binders with polymers, it enhances strength, reduces permeability, and extends lifespan. Its versatility, reduced maintenance, and sustainability make it an ideal choice for infrastructure, industrial, and architectural applications.
Concrete plays a pivotal role in infrastructure development. Its remarkable compressive strength makes it the foundation for sturdy roads, bridges, and buildings, ensuring the longevity of critical structures. Its durability and resistance to environmental factors like moisture and chemicals make it ideal for withstanding the challenges of infrastructure projects. Concrete's adaptability also allows for efficient construction techniques, contributing to the efficiency and resilience of infrastructure systems.
Polyethylene, a versatile polymer, finds extensive use at ACO, serving as both inner components and bodies. Its attributes like chemical resistance, low maintenance, and robustness ensure a prolonged lifespan. Whether for underground or freestanding setups, polyethylene excels. Employing rotomoulding and welding techniques, ACO harnesses its potential to create enduring, adaptable solutions.
Glass Reinforced Plastic (GRP)
Glass Reinforced Plastic (GRP), commonly known as fiberglass, stands out for its exceptional strength-to-weight ratio. Comprising glass fibers within a resin matrix, GRP boasts durability and corrosion resistance. GRP eliminates the need for heavy machinery and doesn't exceed truck loading limits, saving on transportation and construction costs. Its long-term reliability prevents fatal damage, cutting maintenance and replacement expenses. With enhanced resistance against defects and improper installation risks, repair costs decrease. Its broad applications, consistent characteristics, and corrosion resistance further minimize upkeep expenses. Retaining value over time, GRP provides tailor-made, functional solutions reflecting specific requirements.
The newly developed ACO material NEXITE® (abbreviated NX) is composed with very fine fillers, which enable a high packing density. This results in particularly high strength and load-bearing capacity.
The binders are used in accordance with the European Directive REACH on the protection of human health and the environment. This means that NEXITE® products support sustainable construction in the fields of public urban places, roads, infrastructure as well as heavy load applications.
NEXITE® is 100 % recyclable and can be reused in the natural material cycle.
