Next Generation Composite Matrix Materials Conference

Event details
Wednesday, 22 May 2019
9:30 am – 17:00 pm
Overview
Find out the advances in materials chemistry at this Composites Materials conference

Composite materials are now becoming widely used in a number of applications; however, much of the matrix materials chemistry has remained unchanged for a number of years.

The Composites Leadership forum and the UK Chemistry Council have both identified Materials for Composites as a growth opportunity for the UK. Advances in materials chemistry have the potential to capitalise on this growth opportunity by introducing new functionality and increased performance of materials to end users of composites. This conference aims to highlight UK research within this area.
