On October 24th – 25th, the Automotive Committee of the Latin American Composite Materials Association (ALMACO) will promote several lectures addressed to professionals from the automakers Agrale, Marcopolo and Neobus, Brazil.

Located in Caxias do Sul, the companies already use composites as raw materials of parts used in their buses, trucks and agricultural vehicles. “We will show how our production chain has evolved over the past few years, and the new solutions that we can offer to the transportation sector, whether in terms of materials or production processes,” says Paulo Camatta, Executive Manager of ALMACO and Coordinator of the Automotive Committee.

Among the novelties, Camatta highlights a few types of composites that reduce the weight of parts without affecting their mechanical strength, helping to reduce the fuel consumption of vehicles. “We will also present alternatives of more resistant materials, including ballistic protection, and that enable the achievement of ‘Class A’ surface finish required by the automakers,” he says.

Formed by fifteen experts in raw materials and composites moulding, ALMACO’s Automotive Committee has promoted meetings like these in the factories of Ford, GM and Troller.
