EPTA - The European Pultrusion Technology Association was created in 1989 by the leading Pultruders in Europe with the mission to support the growth of the composite profiles industry by maximizing external communication efforts and having an actively contributing membership.
Pultrusion is one of the longest established technologies for manufacturing profiles made from fibre reinforced plastics. The aim of the Association was, and remains,
to reinforce the position of this process technology and promote their common interests. Today, the European Association of Pultruders has over 30 members throughout Europe and provides a strong network for pultruders sharing know-how and marketing ideas they have developed jointly...
The attractive long-term prospects for pultruded composites in infrastructure and further key application markets were highlighted at the recent World Pultrusion Conference, organised by the European Pultrusion Technology Association (EPTA). This year’s event attracted a record number of composites professionals from around the world to Vienna on 1-2 March to discuss growth drivers for the pultrusion industry, potential in existing and emerging applications, and the latest developments in materials, testing and standardisation.

The Pultrusion is one of the longest established technologies for manufacturing profiles made from fibre reinforced plastics. Today the excellent properties of pultruded profiles make them well suited to numerous applications in infrastructure, housing and industry. Offering a combination of properties not available with traditional building materials, and attractive attributes for green builders, the prospects for pultruded profiles especially in the residential housing market are bright. The EPTA - European Pultrusion Technology Association – has now published a new document about the opportunities for composite profiles in the residential housing market.
