FRP Unlimited

Connecting professionals to the value of Fibre Reinforced Plastics

Tagung / Kongress
May 10 - 11, 2022
Exchange with experts
International Conference
The conference language is English

Glass fibre reinforced plastics (FRP) have been used for many years in the manufacture of pipes, vessels and apparatus and are highly valued for their special material.

In 1995 plant designers, engineers, end-users and plant operators for the first time have taken the opportunity to meet and discuss on FRP material and thus gain knowledge and exchange experience on this unique construction material. Since then this Conference has become a worldwide platform for discussions on the industry’s issues. Participants have the chance to inform themselves about the uses and applications enabled by this “unlimited” material.

The international Conference enriches your knowledge by meeting skilled experts and discussing latest findings! Practical experience and reports on the day-to-day use with FRP components are the main focus of the Conference. You will benefit from the experience of well-known companies and experts!

The conference will be held as a face-to-face event.
