Conventional bridge building materials, like timber and steel, have problems that
can limit their expected service life. These problems include termite and fungi
attack for timber, and corrosion for steel. These problems do not affect the hybrid
concrete-composite bridge produced by Wagners Composite Fibre Technologies.
However, the use of composite materials in the infrastructure industry is relatively
new. Their wide acceptance by the industry is therefore tributary on assessing
their long-term durability.
