The European Association of PULTRUDERS was formed in 1989 by the leading FRC (Fiber Reinforced Composites) Pultruders in Europe.
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...
Developed in the early 1950s the Pultrusion is one of the oldest production processes in the Composites industry. The application range is very wide and with a production volume of nearly 50.000 tons in Europe (2015) products are well established in several industries. An interesting question for potential users as well as producers and suppliers is, how the market development was during the last years and which are the trends in the composites industry in general.
The EPTA is present at several shows and meetings along the whole year. For example you find us every year at the COMPOSITES EUROPE trade fair. The next fair will be on 29 November -01 December 2016 in Stuttgart, Germany.
