Their resistance to corrosion makes them more suitable for the marine environment. These include several processes like installation and manufacturing of composite piles.

The manufacturer of the composite piles is adapting themselves as per the need. These piles are economical and provide extra strength to the structures.

These piles are hard to handle and use on the sites due to their transportation difficulty. These are used in the level under the groundwater table, where the pile cap is cast by the concrete and the rest under it is a composite pile.
