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 email@example.com.
The Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MassDOT) selected a lightweight FiberSPAN fibre reinforced polymer (FRP) bridge deck, manufactured by Composite Advantage, for the Rugg Bridge on Route 57.
Intertronics has compiled a guidance note on how to specify a dispensing robot.
The Lightweight Technologies Forum will take place in parallel to Composites Europe, on 6-8 November 2018 in Stuttgart, Germany.
