Composites UK: Fire Performance of FRPs with Nigel Keen

This one hour webinar is organised by Composites UK

The fire performance of a composite component or structure is complex and accordingly, the knowledge base is constantly growing as new products arrive in the market place in response to growing demand. Despite the topic proving to be a “moving target”, there is a need to improve the understanding of how the fire performance of fibre reinforced polymer (FRP) composite components is specified by the engineer and buyer, and achieved by the manufacturer.

This webinar will take a brief look into the topics covered in the Fire Performance for FRPs Good Practice Guide, launched by Composites UK in September 2019, and is hosted by one of its authors, Nigel Keen.
