Fire Protection Coatings for FRP Composite Bridges
The challenge to ensure that FRP composites are adequately protected against fire events continues to stimulate new advances in coating technologies. In the absence of harmonised fire regulations across Europe for composite bridges, manufacturers are driven to select the most appropriate standard(s) available, to demonstrate sufficient protection. In this session, Finnester Coatings and FiberCore Europe will present details of a recent project to qualify a protective coating system over a standard composite bridge material, aiming to meet the B-classification requirements under EN 13501-1:2019 (EU standard for Construction Products).

Intelligent Reactive Polymer Production and Quality Control in the Mold
In the production of reactive polymer components, extended process times, high scrap rates, labor-intensive quality assurance and therefore high costs are often the result. sensXPERT shifts quality control into the mold to increase efficiency and enables direct feedback of the material to reduce scrap parts.
Sensors integrated in the mold measure the properties of the material during the manufacturing process. Real-time data from the process environment are combined with fundamentals of material science and artificial intelligence to predict optimal curing of the components. The innovative software dynamically adapts the process to real conditions and transforms the need for subsequent quality control to a minimum.
The cloud application allows comparison of efficiency of different machines, processes and production facilities. The customizable dashboards allow access to all production data from anywhere in the world and on any device.
