Opportunities for Thermoplastic Composite Materials

Taking place on 23rd September 2010 Chesterfield

The aim of this seminar is to provide a forum to showcase new developments in materials, processing and design for thermoplastic composite materials, identify key advances, and highlight technology gaps that require further research investment. Applications and new end-user opportunities will also be explored.

The event will be of interest to those involved with high performance thermoplastics generally or thermoplastic composite materials specifically, in particular with their development, manufacture, research, design and end-use.
