JX Composites™

The true scope of applications for CLAF® mesh, laminated plastics and films is only now being realized.

While these composite materials are invaluable to the JX ALTA line of housewrap products, the same could be said for thousands of yet undeveloped products.

This is why JX ALTA works closely with engineers and industrious thought leaders to develop these new products. With these composite materials, the scope of what can be done is almost imperceptible – and we want to work with you to make progress with composites and flesh out new product markets.

Composites Design and Manufacturing

Toll Conversion

JX ALTA composite materials, plastics and films have been used by engineers to develop products for a myriad of different products, including:

  • Padded industrial wrap; a durable fabric layer to protect equipment from abrasion and wear
  • Heater pouch fabric; laminated plastics and adhesives used for heating pre-packaged foods
  • Biodegradable weed block fabric; an alternative to traditional weed block fabric that feeds lawns as it degrades
  • Cut-resistant paper board; calendered polypropylene netting embedded into paperboard to inexpensively increase durability
  • Automobile covers: laminated, breathable membranes that keep water out while remaining incredibly light

As a builder of residential and commercial buildings in Charleston, SC, we are faced with seasonal rains, high temperatures, high humidity and heavy air conditioning use during the long summer months… When we stick frame a new house in the Low Country we look for several features in our Moisture Barrier… With the unique vertical diamond surface of the Alta Drainable house wrap, the moisture behind the siding is allowed to drain and dissipate providing a more breathable construction. The Alta product is one more element in our battle against the elements and is our house wrap of choice.
