Meet and interact with graphene experts at the Graphene Connect workshop taking place at Messe Düsseldorf, conference room 814 A & B, during Composites Europe in Düsseldorf, Germany on 29 November to 1 December 2016.
Graphene is an innovative carbon-based material made of robust, flexible, electrically conductive sheets, having a thickness of one atom and a lateral size of several microns. “It can be produced on large scale from the exfoliation of conventional graphite. Due to its unique combination of superior properties graphene can improve the functionality of composite materials. It is lightweight but at the same time incredibly strong, transparent, conducts heat and electricity and has a large surface area,” states Vincenzo Palermo, Graphene Flagship leader of Polymer Composites and keynote speaker at the workshop.
The Graphene Flagship states that it carries out advanced research, creating unique and innovative materials by incorporating graphene into composites. There are many potential applications including aerospace and automotive industries, energy applications, structural foams, films and coatings.
Join the Graphene Flagship workshop and learn more and interact with Europe’s leading graphene experts.

Composites UK reports that its members are supporting the new 2018-2021 Safety in Manufacturing Plastics and Composites strategy (SIMPLC).
Composites are considered hard to join and researchers have predominantly focused on mechanical joining technologies including crimping, gluing, riveting or screwing. The Composites Europe exhibition in Stuttgart, Germany, on 6-8 November will show the advantages and drawbacks of each of these processes.
The Aachen Center for Integrative Lightweight Production (AZL) and the Institute of Plastics Processing (IKV) at RWTH Aachen University are commencing a study into the use of thermoplastic tapes in injection moulded parts. Companies interested in joining the study are invited to a kick-off event during Fakuma 2018 in Friedrichshafen, Germany, on 18 October.
