The Latin American Composite Materials Association (ALMACO) and JEC Group, leader in the dissemination of composites in the world, promote between November 04-06, in São Paulo (Brazil) the International Seminar on Composites.

In total, the event includes 24 lectures divided into three main themes: Transportation, Construction and Industry/Energy. “The presentation of works addressing the latest technologies will help the entire market to learn more about composites, their characteristics and opportunities. During this period of crisis which we have been facing and, consequently, the need for innovation, differentiation and competitiveness, composites stand out as a very interesting alternative,” said Gilmar Lima, president of ALMACO. 

In parallel to the lectures, the participants will be able to check out an art gallery with composite parts, a space that will exhibit from decorative objects to urban furniture, vehicles, aircraft and components of wind turbines. “The idea is to show the versatility of the material and its importance in the daily lives of people,” said Lima.
