Composites Industry Programs

JEC Composites Industry Programs

The JEC Composites Industry programs aim to unite decision makers in the global automotive, aerospace, sports, and medical industries around the development of composite materials in their respective sectors and to provide end users with the latest information, trends and experience on composite materials from the entire value chain.

Three Composites Industry Programs

JEC Composites Aerospace Industry Program

JEC Composites Industry Program - Aerospace

Tuesday May 12th, 2020, 4.35pm – 6pm: « Towards a More Sustainable Strategy » @ the AGORA (Hall 5)

The aerospace industry is a major source of innovation and technological advancements that often originates inspiration across a wide variety of other industries. Nowadays, in a context where environmental constraints are becoming increasingly stringent especially when it comes to air mobility, OEMs are constantly in search of innovative answers and solutions that will allow them to create a ‘greener’ future. The need for light-weighting, reduced maintenance and waste, and repurposing aerospace-grade CFRP towards other applications are expected to drive demand and adoption of composites in aerospace applications.

JEC Composites Automotive Industry Program

JEC Composites Industry Program - Automotive

Wednesday May 13th, 2020, 2.35pm – 4pm: « The Right Material at the Right Place » @ the AGORA (Hall 5)

Among the many challenges facing the automotive industry, reducing vehicle mass and therefore emissions all while maintaining safety and cost-efficiency remain key. Lighter materials implying higher costs, they limit mass production. Therefore, a combination of materials, albeit hybrid solutions, would help solve this issue and are becoming increasingly attractive for manufacturers. This “Industry Program” consists of industry presentations and a panel discussion involving major OEMs & Tier1s from all over the world. It covers the challenges & opportunities of using composites materials in the Automotive field.

NEW IN 2020: JEC Composites Sports & Health Industry Program

JEC Composites Sports & Medical Industry Program

Thursday May 14th, 2020, 2pm – 3.30pm:  « The Composites Trifecta: Design Flexibility, Performance, and Comfort » @ the AGORA (Hall 5)

Improving user experience and helping it become risk-free, as well as facilitating rehabilitation for patients coming back from severe injuries and pursuing performance in high-level sports, are only a few of the requirements the Sports and Medical fields are currently taking on. The combination of superior strength and stiffness, lightweight properties, durability and customizable designs have made composite materials a natural fit for these industries, which both require the best possible material combinations for safety, comfort, and performance.
