Back for a seventh year, Composites UK and the British Plastics Federation are yet again partnering to bring you their annual joint event focussing on the developments of thermoplastic composites.
To celebrate the UK hosting COP26 later this year, where Nations will come together to discuss and agree measurements to combat the escalating climate crisis, this event will look at the greener, sustainable side of thermoplastic composites.
