Concrete and masonry are heavy.
Advantic provides equivalent strength at 1/4 the weight.
Concrete and masonry corrode.
Advantic will not corrode and can withstand extremely harsh environments.
Concrete and masonry interfere with RF communications.
Advantic is highly permeable to RF communications across a broad frequency range.
Construction will impact ongoing operations.
Advantic has been demonstrated to provide massive installation cost savings.
I need a structural thermal break.
Advantic has better thermal performance than AAC, and at 4 times the strength.
It is expensive to modify precast in the field.
Advantic can be easily modified with conventional tools.
While conventional building construction materials are often commodity items, Advantic structural elements are custom designed for each application. Advantic professional engineers leverage their expertise in conventional structural engineering and experience with Advantic advanced materials development to design a solution specific to your need.
Here’s how it works:
RF Transmissivity: Unlike other conventional wall and floor sections, Advantic wall and floor sections have been designed to be practically invisible to a broad band of frequencies, including radio frequency communication.
FST Compliance: Advantic floor and wall panels have been formulated to meet customer requirements for stringent flame, smoke, and toxicity in both the transportation and civil infrastructure markets.
Acoustic Damping: Conventional building materials are not optimized to control sound transmission. Advantic has developed structural sections that provide superior acoustic mitigation in demanding applications.
Strength and Failure Mode Control: Advantic has the ability to tailor both the panel strength and failure mode to meet structural requirements, from economical forms for secondary structure to highly energy absorptive forms advantageous for primary structures, progressive damage and collapse design, or sacrificial hinge behavior.
What if your next structural wall could…
…incorporate Smart Building or other sensor platforms, supporting electronics, and transmission capabilities?
…provide encased, protected power distribution?
…meet the ever-changing security, defense, and homeland security needs?

One of the most common applications of polymer syntactic materials is undersea buoyancy. Advantic materials have been used in many undersea applications such as energy exploration, submerged sensor systems, and undersea vehicles.
Today’s medical imaging systems require tables and support systems that are strong, lightweight, and provide consistent dielectric performance. Advantic provides advanced engineering, formulation, and processing capabilities to help our customers meet their stringent performance specifications.
Advantic materials have been used in unique high voltage applications. Advantic engineers customize high purity materials to meet dielectric constant, dielectric strength, dielectric breakdown strength, and arc resistance requirements while providing sufficient mechanical performance to survive demanding environments.
Concept to Completion
While advanced materials solutions may seem like a good fit for your project, you don’t need a sales pitch—you need information in your language. Advantic’s experienced professional engineers are highly regarded in their respective communities. We deliver value to owners, architects, engineers, and contractors through transparent, pragmatic working relationships. We understand your world, because it’s ours, too.
We differentiate ourselves by offering value-engineering services that go beyond introducing our products’ capabilities. We have the experience and expertise to collaborate with you to seamlessly integrate Advantic products into your project.
Advantic supports our customers in all phases of a project, from conceptual design, through submittal and approval processes, to installation. Our staff has decades of experience in both design and project management as well as field work in virtually all types of construction, from heavy infrastructure to high tech facilities.
Capacity to Deliver
Advantic materials are produced in our manufacturing facilities in Kettering, Ohio. With state-of-the-art manufacturing equipment, Advantic stands ready to meet your needs and deliver product on time.
Our supply chain is flexible and responsive, and we are positioned to increase production capacity as market pull demands.
Advantic Polymer Foam
Advantic has developed foundational expertise in the production of lightweight, high performance polymer composite foams. It provides mechanical properties that in many cases exceed conventional and ultra-high performance concrete mixes. Our customers gain access to a broad range of strength-to-weight ratios to tailor our material to their needs. Advantic’s team of professional engineers and material scientists work with customers to develop a custom formulation and structural system configuration to meet their target performance and budgetary requirements.
