SA - Durability of Composite Materials for Critical Infrastructure 
Wednesday, 17 October 2018  

They are hidden in concrete, bolted to steel and wound through pipes; fibre composites are all around us and here to stay. Virtually revolutionising the infrastructure market, composites offer outstanding lightweight construction properties thanks to their low density and mass, high strength & stiffness, abrasion, corrosion, temperature & chemical resistance, adjustable thermal expansion coefficients, electrical conductivity, as well as their potential for incorporating smart components.

Three leading suppliers invite you to the discussion providing an objective, comprehensive forum to discuss new developments for composite and carbon fibre materials in emerging markets, such as water/waste water, wind energy, marine and commercial construction. Topics to include pipeline solutions to replace exotic metals, eliminating corrosion by using composite rebar for concrete structures & seawall and sheet pile innovations in maritime environments using lightweight FRP panels.

This is a peek in to the future to how we can realise our durability objectives using these emerging advanced composites. So come and meet the composite industry’s most innovative and influential leaders at this fully catered event and network with fellow industry design professionals. The event will be held in the David Spence Room of Adelaide Town Hall.

Cost to ACA and ACRA Members is $35 and Non-Members $55.
