Seal it to keep it

I’m going to drive this car until it rusts away: That’s the  intention of some car owners anyway, until the technical inspection is due, and the chances of older vehicles being 
approved are not so good.

They cross rivers, valleys, roads, and railroad tracks; they are landmarks, tourist attractions, or just a way to get from one place to another. There are around 140,000 bridges in Germany, 40,000 of which are on freeways and federal highways. Making supporting rods from fiberglass- reinforced polymer based on VESTAMIN® R can help prepare bridges for the future.



The future belongs to the wind

On coastal plains, on the high seas, or in the mountains - wind turbines are everywhere. During their service life of ten or more years, the blades will have to withstand many weather extremes and survive sunlight, storms and rain.
