We are holding our 2nd edition of Long-Fibre Thermoplastics, a
conference on LFT technologies and applications, on 4-5 December 2018 in Berlin,
Germany. Leading experts will examine the latest developments in materials,
production techniques and end-use applications which are driving growth in LFT
LFTs combine high strength with low weight, making
them an attractive alternative to metals and to more expensive polymers. Expert
speakers will cover 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.
Long-Fibre Thermoplastics 2018 will bring together
leading players in the LFTs industry, key players in the LFTs supply chain, and
existing and potential end-users and processors to learn more about the
utilisation, formulation and processing of these versatile, high performance
and light weight polymer compounds.
In addition to two days of conference sessions,
the event will feature a
focused table-top exhibition and provide plenty of networking
opportunities, including coffee breaks, lunches and an evening cocktail
Thermoplastics 2018 will provide the perfect forum to get an up-to-date
view on market trends and growth opportunities of LFTs. Join key industry
professionals from throughout the supply chain to explore the future of LFTs,
and grow your network.
