COMPOSITESWORLD, publisher of High-Performance Composites and Composites Technology magazines, as well as the COMPOSITESWORLD Weekly e-newsletter, is presenting the the High Performance Fibers Conference, Oct. 28-29 at the Charleston Marriott Hotel in Charleston, S.C.
Keynote speaker at the event will be Tucker Norton, Ph.D, global technology manager at DuPont Advanced Fiber Systems. The tentative title of his presentation is "New high-performance fiber technologies for ballistic and thermal hazards." Tucker's speech will cover 40 years of fiber research at DuPont committed to helping protect law enforcement, firefighters and other first responders with science-based innovations such as flame-resistant fibers and advanced materials; and DuPont's continued commitment to innovation with two new innovative technologies, Kevlar XP and Nomex On Demand, a "smart" thermal liner technology that activates when protection is needed most.
