Chang-On International Inc. Refines Focus to Capitalize On Emerging Trends
HARBIN, China, Aug. 19, 2008 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Chang-On International Inc. (OTCBB:CAON), a Chinese manufacturer of green architectural products made of its innovative SF brand of synthetic resin, announced today that it has chosen to focus a greater portion of its energies and attention on developing its production of formwork for the rapidly growing RMB1.5 Trillion (US$208 Billion) green construction systems in China. Formworks are assembled molds to hold poured concrete that are typically made from steel. Chang-On formwork is composed of recycled plastic and coal ash utilizing its proprietary and patented processes. Because of rising steel consumption, steel formwork has been largely prohibited by the Chinese government, prompting many industry analysts to predict that green and recycled architectural formwork, due to its relatively low cost and extended product life span, will emerge as the industry standard and replace most of the existing formworks.
