Thermoplastics 2017, AMI's two-day conference on LFT technologies and applications,
was taking place on 7-8 November 2017 in Cologne, Germany. Leading experts examined the latest developments in materials, production techniques and end-use applications which are driving growth in LFT composites.
LFTs combine high strength with low weight, making them an
attractive alternative to metals and to more expensive polymers. Expert
speakers covered the latest applications of LFTs in the automotive industry,
which remains the dominant end-use market, and in non-automotive sectors where the
material’s high-performance properties are driving rapid growth.
The conference covered advances in reinforcing fibres,
coupling agents and composites formulation, plus new developments in LFT
production and processing techniques designed to promote fibre adhesion, retain
fibre length, increase throughput and improve finished part quality. In addition to two days of conference sessions, the event
focused table-top exhibition and provided plenty of networking
opportunities, including coffee breaks, lunches and an evening cocktail
Thermoplastics 2017 provided the perfect forum to discover new
technologies, and market opportunities. Leading players from throughout
the supply chain attended to explore the future of LFTs.
Long-Fibre Thermoplastics 2018 is will take place in the Sofitel Kurfürstendamm Hotel, Berlin, Germany from the 4 - 5 December 2018.
