WORKSHOP 4: Advanced GRP or Composite Repairs and Surface Finishing

This workshop is for anyone currently using or working with composite structures or components. This could include companies working in the marine, automotive, aviation, transport or component manufacture sectors. This workshop follows on from Workshop 3 which focused on identifying common faults and diagnosing damage. This workshop will examine how to deal with more extensive damage and how to complete repairs as well as dealing with surface finish repairs.

On successful completion of the workshop, you will be able to analyse major damage to a composite structure and complete a repair. There will also be the opportunity to identify surface faults and the methods used to repair them.

The workshop is a practical hands-on full day session. In the morning you will diagnose damage to composite structure and select the correct materials to complete the repair. The afternoon will follow with a practical session completing a major repair to either moulds or a composite component in our fully equipped composites academy.
