SPE’s Automotive Composites Conference Preview
Automotive composites continues to draw global audience to the Motor City in 2016.

The matrix (2017)
The matrix binds the fiber reinforcement, gives the composite component its shape and determines its surface quality. A composite matrix may be a polymer, ceramic, metal or carbon. Here's a guide to selection.

Form + function = Classy chassis
Sandwich-composite chassis components double as structural and styling elements, reducing cost of ownership.

Smart Lightweighting at ACCE
I’m in Detroit, at the 2015 Society of Plastics Engineers’ (SPE) Automotive Composites Conference and Exhibition (ACCE), co-chaired by our contributor Dale Brosius and organized by our contributor Peggy Malnati. And I’m seeing real composite cars, and real, in-production composite parts.

The matrix (2015)
The matrix binds the fiber reinforcement, gives the composite component its shape and determines its surface quality. A composite matrix may be a polymer, ceramic, metal or carbon. Here's a guide to selection.

Processing within the PUR cure window
