Limited delegate places remain at the Fire Performance of FRP Composites event being organised by Composites UK on 29th January 2019.
The event, supported by the National Composites Centre, will be held at the Fire Service College, Moreton-in-Marsh and will include an optional tour of its BS 8414 test rig.
The performance of composite materials in fire is a key enabler / barrier to potential growth markets such as construction, rail, marine, aerospace and oil & gas.
Topics covered include an overview, testing, standards and case studies of products already being put to use to enhance the fire performance of fibre reinforced polymer composites (FRPs).
With the appropriate choice of resin, additives, fillers and coatings, FRPs can be used to make structures with clear fire performance benefits over many other materials, in addition to other benefits such as weight reduction or corrosion resistance. FRP composites are also good thermal insulators, so they can significantly limit the heat of a fire spreading in the way that can occur with metals. This event will seek to share up-to-date information on material developments and applications where fire performance is an issue.
The event is open to everyone, however Composites UK members receive a discount to attend.
