Lightweighting with Composites and Plastics


The automotive and aerospace industries, in particular, are increasingly looking for innovations that reduce weight, resulting in greater fuel efficiency. From car bumpers to airplane interiors, composites and plastics are being used more commonly for functional components that are lightweight and offer thermal and chemical resistance.

Trends and advances in automotive and aerospace lightweighting-related plastic/composite formulations, as well as processes to expand applicability for high-volume manufacturing, are presented in this one-hour Technical Webinar from the editors of SAE International and Tech Briefs Media.

An audience Q&A is included.
