FRP pultrusions replace wood for structural applications
Unlike wood, fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP) is unaffected by salt spray, moisture or prolonged immersion in water, making it a good material choice for structural applications in harsh environments.
Pultrusions growing in construction: new EPTA report
There’s a new report out from EPTA (European Pultrusion Technology Assn., Frankfurt am Main, Germany) that discusses new trends for pultrusion in building and construction.
Composites for builders: Establishing structural foundations
Doors open to composites in residential and light commercial construction, above and below ground.
Composites 2010 Product Showcase
The ACMA’s Las Vegas exhibition reflected an industry in recovery.
CNC routers optimize cooling tower build
Although cooling towers traditionally have been made with wood and concrete, composite materials are gaining acceptance due to their corrosion and rot resistance, light weight and ease of installation.
COMPOSITES+POLYCON 2009 Showcase
Despite the deepening recession, composites pros returned to the show in its new time slot to explore the wealth of products and services collected here.
The markets: Corrosion resistance (2011)
Composites continue to provide a superior alternative to metals in corrosive environments. Two standout applications are scrubbers and chimneys in coal-burning plants and cured-in-place-pipe for subterranean water and wastewater management systems.
Pultruded Composites Span Infrastructure Gaps
Pre-engineered deck and superstructure systems are finding their niche in many locations around the world.
How Are Composite Bridges Performing?
Ongoing monitoring and inspection demonstrates that composite bridge decks meet or exceed expectations.
