Supporting UK Composites

Thermoplastic Composites 2019

Composites UK is again teaming up with the British Plastics Federation (BPF) for the seventh year to organise Thermoplastic Composites. This year it will look at recent developments in TPCs including new applications and technological advancements in aircraft of the future.

This event provides an important opportunity for manufacturers and material suppliers to hear from end-users and showcase the material’s lightweight and durable properties as well as developments in high-volume manufacture.

Who is the event aimed at?

Thermoplastic Composites 2019 is aimed at senior and middle management professionals from plastics companies who produce and use Thermoplastic Composites or wish to explore entering this important area. The seminar aims to provide a forum for discussing the latest in thermoplastic technology and to give attendees an opportunity to network and make contacts within the industry.
