The international conference on advances in LFT materials, processing technologies and applications

7-8 November 2017, Maritim Hotel, Cologne

Organised by Applied Market Information Ltd. (AMI)

Long-Fibre Thermoplastics 2017, AMI's new two-day conference on LFT technologies and applications, will take place on 7-8 November 2017 in Cologne, Germany.  Leading experts will examine the latest developments in materials, production techniques and end-use applications which are driving growth in LFT composites.

LFTs combine high strength with low weight, making them an attractive alternative to metals and to more expensive polymers. Expert speakers will cover the latest applications of LFTs in the automotive industry, which remains the dominant end-use market, and in non-automotive sectors where the material’s high-performance properties are driving rapid growth.

The conference will cover advances in reinforcing fibres, coupling agents and composites formulation, plus new developments in LFT production and processing techniques designed to promote fibre adhesion, retain fibre length, increase throughput and improve finished part quality. In addition to two days of conference sessions, the event will feature a focused table-top exhibition and provide plenty of networking opportunities, including coffee breaks, lunches and an evening cocktail reception.

Long-Fibre Thermoplastics 2017 will provide the perfect forum to discover new technologies, and market opportunities. Join leading players from throughout the supply chain to explore the future of LFTs.
