JEC End-Users Forums at the 2008 JEC Composites Show

04 March 2008

6 End-users Forums will take place at the Paris JEC Composites Show, on April 1-2-3, 2008.

Last year, the six forums (Marine, Aeronautics, Automotive, Land Transportation, Construction and Biocomposites) welcomed more than 1,550 international qualified participants (46.5% were end-users). This success prompted JEC to plan six new forums this year:

• Marine: “Resins with enhanced performance”
• Natural Fibres: “Composites & natural fibres: real opportunities”
• Automotive: “Composite penetration and process improvements”
• New in 2008 : Environment & Recycling: “The composite contribution”
• Aeronautics: “Composite continuous progress in aeronautics”
• Building/Construction: “Lifetime and recycling for composites in construction”

Marine: Resins with Enhanced Performance

1/ A new programmable paste rheology concept for marine applications
2/ Polymer coating technologies for improved crack resistance and blush-resistant applications
3/ Description of a methodology to reach good surface quality in vacuum infusion for marine applications
4/ Reactive co-promoters for unsaturated polyester resins used in the marine industry
5/ Using peroxides to optimize process control for styrene emissions

Natural Fibres: Composites & Natural Fibres: Real Opportunities

1/ Flax and hemp: vegetal fibres for the industry
2/ Development of new flax-fibre-reinforced thermoplastic materials in plastics processing
3/ Mechanical performance of natural fibre versus E-glass chopped-strand mat for resin-infused composite
4/ Applications of natural coir fibre
5/ Development of a race bike using flax fibre and carbon fibre

Automotive: Composite Penetration and Process Improvements

1/ Simulation of fibre reinforced composites (FRC) using finite element software
2/ New porous thermoplastic composite technologies for the automotive industry
3/ PUR solutions for structural parts with different reinforcement materials
4/ Renault F1 Team: an inside look at reducing composite cycle times and errors by automating analysis data transfer
5/ Thermal expansion of Sheet Moulding Compound (SMC) materials
6/ Smart Fortwo tailgate: first serial application of E-LFT technology

Environment & Recycling: The Composite Contribution

1/ Unsaturated polyester resin based on bio-renewable resources
2/ Simply green
3/ Environmental benefits of using Advantex® glass fibres as reinforcements in composite materials
4/ Sustainability and CO2 emissions in composites
5/ New technology for the recovery of thermoplastic materials reinforced with natural, glass or carbon fibres
6/ Recycling of CFRP’s by pyrolysis – process optimisation and potential

Aeronautics: Composite Continuous Progress in Aeronautics

1/ An industrial solution for studying complex failures of composite structures
2/ Micromechanics of failure
3/ Using 3D software to compress development cycles for composite parts through concurrent engineering
4/ A numerical solution tool that supports the complete development of autoclave parts
5/ Feasibility study of a semi-automated out-of-autoclave process
6/ Completely automated production of components in the Resin Transfer Moulding (RTM) process

Building/Construction: Lifetime and Recycling for Composites in Construction

1/ Corrosion control for composites in construction
2/ Lifetime prediction of reinforced and multilayer polymers
3/ Thermoplastic pultrusion for the building industry
4/ New technology for improving processing and properties of cellulose-fibre composites
5/ Recycled SMC composite moulded panels for the construction of swimming pools
6/ Hemp lime concrete: an opportunity for sustainable construction and market
7/ Global approach for the design of “lime and shine” concrete
