The AVK conference at the Messe Essen Congress Centre on 22-23 September 2008 is again the prelude to this year´s European Composites Europe trade fair.
The conference programme offers up-to-date information and practical application examples in connection with:
- High performance composites
- Thermoplastic composites
- Thermosetting composites
- Environment & recycling
- Joining technology
- Raw materials & compounds
The 6th N-FibreBase Conference on biomaterials will also be taking place parallel to this. The latest developments in the field of natural fibres and WPC will be presented here, particularly in connection with injection moulding, processing, construction, and marketing/communication.
Toho Tenax is introducing a high-tensile, highly shock-resistant prepreg that incorporates carbon fibre developed for aerospace applications and carbon nanotubes (CNTs).
AZL Aachen, in cooperation with 19 participating companies, RWTH Aachen University and CONBILITY, has launched an international market and technology study focused on energy storage systems.
NTPT is collaborating with the Ecole polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne - Swiss Centre of Technology (EPFL) and other partners to research discontinuous fibre composite tubes for high performance applications.
