Modern Super Materials
Florida Plastics Projects
Alchemy, is the forerunner of modern chemistry.
They were concerned with one thing, how to turn metal into precious gold. Today their successors, molecular chemists, and microbiologists, are pushing the boundaries of modern science, in a quest for materials more valuable than gold. Synthesized in state of the art labs, modern life would be unthinkable without them.

They are the super materials.

This is the urban landscape of the 21st century.
Around the world, industrialized countries are building cites, with materials, only imagined a few decades ago.
There is a new sense of freedom.

Indeed plastics, today's most prevalent super material, has freed modern construction from the constraints of rigid shapes and properties.

Conventional building materials require frequent repair, and maintenance. Plastics however, are more resistant to these forces.
They are lighter and consume less energy.
Efficient ecologically friendly architecture has become a reality around the world. Some modern towers have literally become transparent. They transform the modern urban landscape.
