SGH applies its in-depth knowledge of the behavior of plastics in short- and long-term applications and in varied environments to design and investigate the performance of pipes, building components, stormwater chambers, fabric radomes, coatings, roof membranes and many other types of structures as well as smaller plastic components of everyday items.  SGH staff, with broad material and analytical skills, and years of practical experience, design new structures, investigate the causes of failures, and develop workable solutions for problem applications.  SGH expertise includes thermoplastic, thermosets, and composite materials.  The SGH laboratory is equipped with a wide array of mechanical and analytical test equipment for plastics.
