Parabeam - A Success Story

‘Investing in what the market wants.’

We are a 3D fiberglass composite manufacturer specialized in the best bonding®- and weaving techniques. 

As a result, one of our core products, the woven fiberglass structure (3D fiberglass) is unique in the market. As 3D fiberglass can also be intertwined with other materials, the resulting sandwich structures provide customers with a material that is light in weight, flexible, and ductile. 

We provide what the market needs: Expertise in the composites industry, but also in related fields, such as transportation technology, process engineering and construction.

"You can’t buy applied experience off the shelf".

 

Sincerely,

Jurgen Koot, CEO Parabeam

future composite fiberglass sandwich construction

With a growth rate of around 8%, the composites market amounted to around 18 billion euros in 2013. But what can we expect from 2014? What is it that has driven the composites market this year so far? Where can we find new opportunities?

Façade cladding with marble stone is an expensive and difficult task to undertake. Seasonal factors such as temperature swings and moisture constitute stress for the slabs and under certain conditions can lead to surface cracks or even complete detachment. However stone specialist Kunovar & Kamni found a way to compensate for these issues.

The Fiberglass Cloth Expert

By now Parabeam received a remarkable worldwide recognition for concepting and prototyping with fiberglass fabrics. Composite material experts from all sorts of high-end fiberglass processing industries, like marine, road- and rail transport, automotive, aerospace, military, construction and the sports sector chose to work with Parabeam.

 

3D Fiberglass Fabrics

With the introduction of Parabeam® 3D fiberglass composites in the late 1980's the composite material industry took a leap forward. The fiberglass cloth was instantly received by the industries as an ideal solution to create thicker sandwich structures which were significantly lower in weight than comparable composite materials. Since the high level technology behind the production was so well thought-out, Parabeam became the synonym for Glass Fabrics in the years following. And in cooperation with companies from various industries, our team has since then been developing and discovering new fields of application, e.g. fiberglass panels, and fiberglass reinforced constructions, such as marble facade cladding. To date Parabeam provides high scores in terms of lightweight, flexibility, fire-retardancy and many other aspects which are important to the different manufacturers and industries. It is therefore not surprising that Parabeam is now internationally renowned for creative glassfiber composite solutions.
