OPEN ALL YEAR ROUND

Fiber-reinforced plastics (FRP) are advanced materials that combine different individual materials to achieve higher strength and flexibility characteristics.

FRPs have experienced widespread expansion in multiple industrial sectors, as they produce high-quality, cost-effective, and durable products. The FRP market for construction is driven by the growing demand for products in the building and construction sector due to their long service life and low maintenance cost.

According to a report by the Architects Council of Europe, most architects have not received any training in FRP. In addition, construction workers with primary or secondary education also have no knowledge of FRP. In addition, the partnership has identified a lack of initial and continuing VET training in the use of FRP in the construction sector that limits the introduction of these materials.

With the drafting of the new Eurocode on composite materials that will come out in a few years. It is necessary to know these materials in order to better understand their behavior and their constituent elements.
