In contrast to the customary sandwich, the elements are organically bound without application of glue.
Numerous applications such as security hatches, bulkheads and doors for sea tankers, boots and submarines, offshore wind farm technology support, structural support for tunnels and railway technology have been designed directly with relevant industry leaders.
Humanitarian as well as military applications have also been at the forefront of the R & D to date.
