Joining composites is truly a challenge since these materials are considered hard to join. Since thermal processes have so far not been applicable researchers have predominantly focused on mechanical joining technologies including crimping, gluing, riveting or screwing.
The composites industry is looking positively to the future. This is shown by the eleventh Composites Market Survey conducted by Composites Germany. The member companies of the four major sponsoring associations of Composites Germany were surveyed on current key figures relating to the market for fibre-reinforced plastics. Here are the results.
