Next Generation Composite Matrix Materials Conference

22 May 2019 10:00-17:00, Manchester, United Kingdom

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.
