    Experts expect machine manufacturers to generate crucial growth impulses for composites

    The automotive industry, construction, aviation and wind power are the major customer industries for fibre composites, a sector where more and more mass-production applications can be found. By contrast, machine manufacturing as an application area for composite structures is still doomed to a shadowy existence. Quantities are still too small, challenges too complex. However, their outstanding lightweight construction properties thanks to their low density and mass, high strength and stiffness, abrasion, corrosion, temperature and chemical resistance, adjustable thermal expansion coefficient, electrical conductivity as well as their potential for incorporating smart components, make these materials increasingly attractive for machine manufacturers.

    Construction industry offers wide range of application options for composites

    Be it GFRP or CFRP, the construction industry is one of the most important fields of application for composites. One reason can be found in the diverse range of applications. Whether it’s profiles or pipes, cable ducts or light wells, formwork or bridge parts: composites are used in a variety of structural components.

    Bio composites lend wings to sustainability trend

    Bio plastics are replacing conventional crude-oil derived products in numerous industries. This is an important step. The packaging industry is the most important sales sector for "green" composites. Bottles, films, bags and pouches consist of up to 58% bio plastics. Find out more about this topic in the Bio-Based Composites Pavilion at Composites Europe. Exhibitors such as DEHONDT COMPOSITES, SAFILIN, the Agency for Renewable Resources, Arctic Biomaterials and Biowert Industrie are available here as experts.

    Composites industry benefits from booming wind power sector

    More and more countries - even beyond the developed industrialised countries of the western hemisphere - are investing massively in the expansion of wind power plants. This not only benefits the market for GRP.

    Top Sports Performance thanks to Composites

    They are hidden in canoes, golf and hockey clubs, in racing bikes, yacht hulls and even swimsuits: fibre composites made inroads into the sports industry a long time ago and have virtually revolutionised it in some areas. From 6 to 8 November 2018 COMPOSITES EUROPE in Stuttgart will demonstrate why summer and winter sportspeople can firmly rely on composites, also when it comes to delivering top sports performances in future.
