Following on from a successful 2012 programme of events, NetComposites are starting off 2013 with a workshop on the Durability of Fibre Reinforced Polymer Composites on 26th February.
Fibre reinforced polymer composites (FRPs) have been used successfully for many years in a wide range of applications in which they are exposed to aggressive environments. It has been demonstrated that, with the correct materials selection, design and manufacture, FRP composites can have a design life of 40 years or more.
There are aspects of durability of composites that are still not fully quantified or understood and this workshop aims to share the experiences of a cross sector of companies.
The programme for the event includes:
The event will take place in Chesterfield, UK. Further details can be found at www.netcomposites.com/workshops.
NetComposites’ upcoming events include Quality in Manufacturing FRP Materials, Opportunities for FRP’s in the Automotive Sector, Design for the End of Life of FRP’s and Non Destructive Testing and Repair of FRPs’. To be kept informed of these please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Global Composites, a new international conference jointly hosted by NetComposites and the American Composites Manufacturers Association (ACMA), will take place at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, US, on 27-28 June 2018.
The UK's Engineering Industries Association (EIA) and the Manufacturing Technologies Association (MTA) have received confirmation of government funding for UK engineering companies to exhibit at overseas trade shows.
At the American Composites Manufacturers Association (ACMA)'s third annual Infrastructure Day on 6-7 February 2018 34 ACMA members joined together to meet with over 100 Members of Congress and their staffs to advance legislation to drive investment in innovative material solutions for transportation, water and energy infrastructure.
