Corrosion presents an immense challenge for the infrastructure sector. Rehabilitating, replacing and upgrading ageing structures is a growing burden worldwide, with significant economic and environmental impacts.
A new briefing from the European Pultrusion Technology Association (EPTA) discusses how lightweight, corrosion-resistant composite materials have the potential to deliver reduced life cycle costs, and a lower carbon footprint, than steel, concrete and wood structures.
The latest EPTA industry briefing, Opportunities for pultruded composites in infrastructure, details the advantages of polymer composite materials for the infrastructure sector and explores two applications where pultruded composite structures and components are already making a positive impact – rebar for concrete reinforcement, and bridge building.
