Fibre reinforced polymer composites (FRPs) play a large role in aircraft interiors, from ceiling and wall panels, to seats and lavatory pods, dividers and stowage bins. FRPs, particularly thermoplastic composites, are widely applauded for their high-strength, lightweight properties, which will only become more valuable as the demands on aircraft designers look to design higher capacity planes.
For the next generation of aircraft, the need to meet CO2 emission reduction targets by reducing fuel burn will drive down airframe weights making the use of composites more crucial for both structural and non-structural components and driving innovation in interior design.
This event will be relevant to the defence and aerospace sectors.
Topics for discussion
- Case studies on advanced design of FRP aircraft interiors components and fixtures.
- Case studies on advanced processing solutions for FRP aircraft interiors components and fixtures

- Non-conductivity: Removing the need for earthing
- Complying with fire standards
- Safety and performance
