• Brief history of Glass Fibre innovation in concrete reinforcement and key application overview
• Outlining the biggest opportunities for material conversion
• Call to action, beyond materials, to ensure the future is built to last

Glass Fibre Reinforcements – the newest, oldest technology on Earth. With 70+ years of usage data and nearly 1,000 applications in existence globally, Fiberglass Rebar stands strong in the battle vs traditional reinforcement materials such as steel; however material science is only half the battle and while battling corrosion seems strong enough for us, there’s much more work to be done. We must accept the challenge that outperforming the standard isn’t enough; we must educate end-users, designers and decision makers; we must fight for codes adoption, skill advancement and the development of task forces to ensure change happens. A better way to build has existed, our trades, unions and installers deserve a product that is as equally tough and durable as it is light and easy-to-handle. Together we must stand and unite for change.
