The reinforced polycarbonate substructure is finished with 1,148 machined aluminum façade panels giving the structure its polished silver appearance.Clinton, Tennessee-based Techmer PM, formulated and supplied 120,000 pounds of Electrafil, the carbon fiber-filled PC material.For identifying growth opportunities in Carbon Fiber Reinforced Plastic Market: Trends, Opportunities and Competitive Analysis, please visit https://www.lucintel.com/carbon-fiber-reinforced-plastic-market.aspx
