Electricity whatever the weather

Although we cannot avert natural disasters, our performance materials can help minimize their effects.

Using a kind of high-strength and high-flexibility polyurethane (PU) composite material, we’ve helped develop extremely robust, ultra-light utility poles, which once installed are several times stronger than other poles and can withstand the most severe conditions. This innovative material means that when natural disasters occur, we can help prevent the loss of electricity, allowing people and communities living in parts of the world that are most at risk from the elements, to recover more quickly.
