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...
ACMA and EPTA announce the second North American Pultrusion Conference and open registration for the widely popular industry event this month. The American Composites Manufacturers Association (ACMA) and the European Pultrusion Technology Association (EPTA) announce the second North American Pultrusion Conference, which will take place April 8-10, 2019, at the Hyatt Rosemont in Rosemont, IL (right outside of Chicago). The event brings together composite industry leaders, customers, OEMS and suppliers to discuss the latest opportunities for pultrusion world-wide.
EPTA's latest industry briefing explains how composite materials can help the rail industry achieve valuable sustainability, performance and cost benefits. Lightweight, high performing and durable composites offer energy efficient solutions with lower environmental impact and reduced through-life costs for asset owners. Versatile pultruded composites enable the cost effective production of new design concepts for rolling stock interior and exterior parts as well as a vast range of infrastructure applications.
