One way of improving performance attributes of building structures is to use a new class of materials-polymer composites. They have unique properties that combine high strength with features of non-metallic materials. Polymer concretes (PC) appear to offer many possibilities for producing new materials with desired physical and mechanical character

About the Authors

Professor Oleg Figovsky is the founder and R&D director at Polymate Ltd.-International Nanotechnology Research Centre (www., where he is working on research in nanostructured corrosion-resistant composite materials and protective coatings based on a polymer and silicate matrix. Novel nanotechnologies invented by Prof. Figovsky were the basis for establishing industrial production in the US, Canada, China, Mexico, Russia, and Israel. For his inventions in nanotechnologies, he was awarded gold and silver medals at IENA-98 and a Gold Angel Prize at the Genius 2006 exhibition. Prof. Figovsky has authored a few books, more than 300 scientific articles, and 500 patents.

Dr. Dmitry Beilin is head of the lab at Polymate Ltd.-International Nanotechnology Research Center in Israel (http://www. His fields of interest include structural theory, thin-walled space structures, NDT diagnostics in industry and construction, and the strength of polymer composite materials. Dr. Beilin has authored more than 100 scientific articles and holds 5 patents.
