The European Pultrusion Technology Association (EPTA) has published an in-depth report on its 2018 conference, which took place in Vienna on 1-2 March.
The 12-page document, World Pultrusion Conference 2018: Attractive Long-Term Prospects for Pultruded Composites, is available to download from the EPTA website.
Global trends such as sustainability continue to drive the adoption of strong, lightweight and durable composite materials in numerous industries including construction, transportation, consumer goods, and the electrical and chemical sectors. Pultrusion, one of the few continuous processes for manufacture of composite parts, enables the cost effective, high volume production of structural profiles and the market for pultruded composites has been experiencing steady growth. The conference report addresses growth drivers for the pultrusion industry, promising application areas for pultruded composites, advances in materials designed to improve performance and productivity, research initiatives, and progress in standardisation in the US and Europe.
Cobra International will showcase a range of composite products at CAMX 2018, including carbon fibre components for the automotive, transportation, marine, water sports and luxury sectors.
The Metyx Hungary factory, located in Kaposvár, has recently expanded its warehousing facilities, adding an additional 3,024 m2 of enclosed storage space for composite technical fabrics, packaging and FRP tooling.
A skateboard, architectural panels and a rigid roof for boats, all built using Chomarat composite reinforcements, will be on display at CAMX 2018.
