Composites UK: Material Improvements for Increased Fire Performance with Fibre Polymer Composites

This webinar will look at the materials that make up fibre polymer composites, and how improvements in resins, fibres and coatings can result in increased material performance when faced with fire.

The hour of presentations will be followed by virtual networking through Airmeet where you will be able to meet the speakers and attendees.
