They Present Innovative Construction Material

As part of the Havana International Fair, the Cuban-Russian joint venture Teccomp Caribe S.A. was presented. It offers meshes and rebars made of composite material based on fiberglass, a material classified as the future in construction.

In announcing the advantages of the product, Hugo Gainshtok, professor at CUJAE’s Faculty of Civil Engineering, said it does not rust, is antimagnetic, has a light weight, its price is competitive in relation to steel, and increases the durability of buildings.

The professor noted that Cuba will begin to produce this polymer, used in global engineering, from October next year, and pointed out that more than 60 percent of the country’s works could be reinforced with that material.

Unlike metal fittings, this construction element does not require welding, and is harmless to the environment.
