Shear Composites specializes in the development and commercialization of sustainable composites using renewable bio-based components blended with recycled and reclaimed materials
At Shear Composites, we take pride in the fact that we look at the world a little differently. We see value in materials that are normally thrown away, downcycled, burned, or otherwise discarded. All of our materials are thoughtfully sourced, with regard to supply, consistency, sustainability, and the end product performance .
