This is a recorded webinar from May 24, 2023.
This webinar is jointly sponsored by NEx: An ACI Center of Excellence for Nonmetallic Building Materials and the American Concrete Institute (ACI).
Non-metallic (NM) fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP) composites provide innovative, durable and cost-effective solutions that have been extensively tested and validated, which are readily available at all built environment scales: from large infrastructure, to commercial, all the way to residential. The pultrusion process of FRP composites allows the manufacturing of limitless shapes and structural profiles for use in any type of construction. Today, FRPs are supported by accepted and recognized material, design and standards; however, NM pultruded solutions are typically not commonly known, and typically limited to niche applications or projects. While adoption of these systems could be widespread to leverage the extensive range of benefits offered by NM pultruded solutions, lack of familiarity and awareness by engineers, owners, and specifiers is a persistent barrier. This webinar aims to provide the necessary initial knowledge and tools to the participant to understand the “why, what, and how” of NM pultruded solutions for the built environment.
