Seminar: Strain Gauge Installation on Plastics and Fiber Composites (DK-F) / Advanced Seminar

The trend towards lightweight construction is stimulating the use of plastic materials and fiber composites. This leads to new challenges for the use of strain gauges.

Are you part of this user community? If so, we heartily recommend this advanced seminar dealing with strain gauge installation on plastic materials.


Focus of this seminar

  • Selecting components for installation on plastic materials and fiber composites
  • Surface preparation for strain gauge installation
  • Strain behavior and temperature response
  • Selecting strain gauges

Choosing adhesives and covering materials 

In the practical part you will install SGs on the following materials:

  • Acrylic glass (as an example of thermoplastics)
  • High-temperature plastic
  • Carbon fiber composite
  • Fiberglass composite
  • Printed circuit boards (FR-4)
