Seminar on High Performance ThermoPlastics Materials

4 September 2019 - Namur, Belgium


Composites Thermoplastiques Composites thermoplastiques



SKYWIN invites you to learn more about the use of High Performance Thermoplastics and their associated technologies. These products will become more and more crucial in many fields for their speed of manufacture and their high recycling capacity.

For example, the aviation industry plans to manufacture more than 35,000 new aircraft over the next 20 years. The explosion of the demand will be such that new approaches and technologies will have to be considered to meet it. As a result, thermoplastic composites are expected to play an increasingly important role in accelerating the production of future aircraft.

Many other sectors (e.g. aerospace, automotive,...) will be impacted by these innovative products as well.

SKYWIN organizes a morning of conferences for you to meet and exchange with renowned Walloon and international experts.
