Target group:

  • Companies active in the polymer/composite industry: material providers as well as processing companies
  • Engineering companies and product manufacturers using polymer/composite structures in their products
  • Software developers of polymer related activities and products
  • Product designers of polymers and composites
  • Academics active in polymer processing, composite materials and product engineering


Why participate:

  • You will learn about the opportunities & challenges with respect to composites/polymer processing, simulation and usage in innovative products
  • Inspiring talks by industrial leaders Vyncolit, NanoCyl, Bekaert and SimpaTec
  • You will get a short overview of the COMPOHEX project, i.e. using composite/polymer materials for heat exchangers bringing added value e.g. in corrosive environments
