Introduction to polymer composites
People say about composites that they are materials with a great future. Today’s machine engineering seeks to build structures with a low weight by not compromising the mechanical properties. What is used most often are polymer composites – fibre composites with a polymer matrix reinforced with short or continuous fibres. The focus of the webinar are polymer composites, their properties and an insight into composite production technologies. Practical demonstrations in the laboratory are part of the webinar.
The webinar is intended for construction engineers, material and application engineers, development engineers and technicians from different industries where composites are made (mostly the automotive, rail, construction and aviation industry).
