HVAC System Components
Non-flammability and electrical conductivity standards are driving demand for material conversion of HVAC system components to composites. In addition to the performance benefits, composites offer HVAC manufacturers the ability to consolidate parts, reduce noise levels, and improve other areas of functionality.
For new product designs, MFG offers prototyping and first article fabrication. The engineering design center and R&D lab are available to assist you with evaluation, testing and certification of material options to achieve your performance targets.
We offer many UL-approved formulations specifically designed for HVAC parts – and we can support your application for specific UL approvals.
For product improvements, we can support re-designs and engineering changes – bringing to bear the latest material, process, environmental and other factors relevant to your objectives.
