Composites Collaborates with Major Industries to Develop Curtainwall System
Crane Composites Inc., a Crane Co. formerly known as Kemlite Co., has collaborated
with Major Industries to develop SunStrong PRS, a fiberglass-reinforced
plastic composite daylighting panel.
According to a company announcement, the new fiberglass panel uses a technologically
advanced polymer resin system that contains ultraviolet screening agents and a
color stability package. The company says the product is designed to provide longer
lasting translucency and better protection against the effects of yellowing and
fiberbloom compared to traditional FRP products.
The SunStrong panel will be offered as a component on Major Industries' Ultimate
Series curtainwall system.
"Together, we are confident that the combination of our products will
offer the most advanced system currently available in the market today,"
said Terry Pettner, business manager.
