Plastics in Construction Industry
Maximize natural light without compromising material strength, energy savings or design possibilities with plastics in building applications.
Environmental and Safety:
Considering the total carbon footprint, including costs of raw materials, manufacture, transport, fabricate, install, maintain, plastics compare favorably with more traditional materials. Also, plastics are safer to handle and install. When you consider that most plastics are readily recyclable, they can become the most environmentally responsible and safest choice for many demanding building and construction applications.

Construction is a vast industry that involves the creation of structures, buildings, and infrastructure. In modern construction, plastic products are widely used due to their lightweight, durability, and versatility. Plastic products like polycarbonate sheets, PVC, acrylic sheets, and composite panels are used for roofing and cladding. The use of plastic products in construction not only provides cost-effective solutions but also reduces the carbon footprint of the industry. However, proper disposal and recycling of these materials are necessary to minimize environmental impact.
