Prospects of new materials
The 18th International IFF Conference will focus on prospects of new materials and technologies for prefabricated concrete products. The event will facilitate the transfer of knowledge and sharing of experience whilst also providing an appropriate space for basic industry-related considerations, joining forces and embarking on new paths of promoting strategies, innovations and projects.
New materials and technologies form the basis for any innovation in the construction industry whilst being key competitive factors.
There is a wide range of innovative materials that encompasses, for example, foamed concrete, ultra-high performance concrete and recycled concrete. A crucial category in this range are composite materials that combine the properties of different materials in an intelligent manner and fulfil new functions. Innovations from the “universe of materials” provide prospects for new applications which had been unthinkable only a few decades ago.
