Title: Advanced polymer composites in construction

Ref Code: IP7/99
Authors: S M Halliwell

Abstract1: Fibre-reinforced plastics (FRP) have been used in construction for several decades, mainly for non-structural architectural applications such as cladding. Advanced polymer composites have superior properties and offer benefits in a range of applications such as sandwich panels, modular units, structural components, reinforcing bars, and structural repair and strengthening. This Paper focuses on the properties of the materials and their uses. Polymer composites offer the architect, designer, structural engineer and building owner many advantages over traditional construction materials.
