Composites UK announces Thermoplastic Composites 2016

Following on from a series of joint events over the past few years, trade associations Composites UK and the British Plastics Federation (BPF) have again formed a partnership to organise Thermoplastic Composites 2016 conference, taking place in London, UK, on 6 October 2016.

This year the one-day event will be focussed on the use of thermoplastics in transport applications, the organizations say. It is aimed at senior and middle management professionals from plastics companies who produce and use thermoplastic composites in the transport industry or who wish to explore entering this important area. Attendees will argue the case for using thermoplastics in different modes of transport, from cars to underground trains, and there will be industry case studies on topics including the use of a honeycomb sandwich preform and the development of a closed-loop recycling method for highly aligned short carbon fibre thermoplastic composites.

The event will be chaired by Henry Sarel-Cook of GKN Land Systems.
