Registration is now open for the Carbon Fiber 2019 conference, which will take place Nov. 19-21 at the Holiday Inn Knoxville Downtown in Knoxville, Tenn., U.S. Register at https://www.xpressreg.net/eReg/?ShowCode=CARB1119, or to go carbonfiberevent.com for more information.

Carbon Fiber 2019, presented by CompositesWorld, will provide an objective, comprehensive forum to discuss new developments for carbon fibers in emerging industrial markets, such as wind energy, marine and construction, as well as in traditional markets, such as aerospace and sporting goods. Discussions will focus on methods for streamlining manufacturing costs in both industrial and aerospace applications, as well as the outlook for consumption in markets with significant potential for growth.

The event will be led by 2019 conference chairs Merlin Theodore, director of the Carbon Fiber Technology Facility at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory (Knoxville), and Jeff Sloan, editor-in-chief of CompositesWorld (see Jeff Sloan’s review of Carbon Fiber 2018: “Reflections on carbon fiber”).

The keynote address will be given by Tim Kirk, vice president of the aerospace sector at Toray Composite Materials America (Tacoma, Wash., U.S.). Titled “High-Rate Composite Fabrication: Materials and Processes for the Future,” the address will cover the current carbon fiber market and shifts that will affect how composites are utilized in structures, including urban air mobility, single-aisle developments at Airbus and Boeing, and automotive transformation to sustainable energy.

  • Colored carbon fiber

    Options for adding color have been around for decades, but new products are hoping to up the ante and open new markets.

  • 787 integrates new composite wing deicing system

    The composite wing leading edge on Boeing’s Dreamliner features an integrated heating element that incorporates a sprayed metal conductive layer within the laminate stack.  

  • The fiber

    The structural properties of composite materials are derived primarily from the fiber reinforcement. Fiber types, their manufacture, their uses and the end-market applications in which they find most use are described.
