Capvond Composites have been developing a composite to replace and replicate cast concrete and traditional stone. The composites developed by Capvond Composites Ltd were tested for material performance at Robert Gordon University, School of Engineering Materials Testing Laboratory, by Mr Kristof Starost, Ms Ruissein Mahon and Dr James Njuguna.
Relevant to the construction industry, the compressive and flexural properties were identified to be the most influential properties required. The materials would undergo varying environmental conditions depending on the location and time of year throughout its lifecycle. In contemplation of the construction industry, concrete was chosen as a reference sample to compare the composite material.
