News International-French

8 Jul 2015

As part of its sector showcase series, the Trade Association for the UK composites industry is focussing on construction for the next one of these events.

Over recent years, the use of fibre-reinforced polymer composites (FRPs) in the construction industry has grown steadily. Its uses cover applications which include bridge decks and structures; external cladding; structural repair and refurbishment; modular buildings; and all-FRP residential and commercial structures.

This event is open to all those wanting to learn more about how FRPs can be used in construction applications. It is specifically aimed at architects, specifiers and designers who will be able to ask their questions to companies already supplying FRPs into the construction sector.

Presenters and exhibitors will cover uses from shower trays, to FRP composite fixings and fastenings through to a FRP viaduct installed by J Murphy and Sons in Chorley, Lancashire.
