Conference 1 - Thermoplastics - Multimaterial Solutions

Tuesday March 14 - 10:00am to 12:45pm
Mezzanine Hall 6 (611)

In partnership with

Conference 1 - Thermoplastics - Multimaterial Solutions

  • Potential of thermoplastic composites in various industries
  • Manufacturing needs

When it comes to using composite materials, thermoplastics have become a staple in many major industries such as Aeronautics or Automotive thanks to their unique properties and the involved processing techniques. Design, manufacturing, optimized structures and hybrid solutions are just a few of the themes that will be developed during this session.

This session will delve into the various aspects of the thermoplastic composites value chain, starting from automotive and aeronautics markets adapted polymer development to recycling. Several presentations will illustrate assembly and functionalisation of composites structures thanks to multimaterials.

This session includes a guided booth tour of selected companies

  • Meeting Point: CETIM - QSP stand (Hall 5A M81)
  • 2:20pm: Pinette Emidecau Industries (Hall 6 B32)
  • 2:40pm: Compose Tools (Hall 6 D62)
  • 3:00pm: Loiretech (Hall 6 A60)
