JEC World 2016 exhibition and product previews
JEC World 2016 will be held in Paris March 8-10. These are some of the products that will be found at the show.

Reformable composite equestrian saddle
This carbon fiber/polyethylene terephthalate (PET) saddle tree features an intralaminate heating element that enables horse owners to reconfigure saddle shapes as horses grow, greatly reducing long-term saddle-fitting costs.

Heated composites
LaminaHeat enables heated composite tools and new opportunities for composites via multifunctional structures.

Carbon/glass fiber-based flexible heating fabrics
LaminaHeat LLC (Greenville, SC, US) introduced PowerFabric, a new addition to its line of thin, flexible heating materials.

JEC Europe 2015: Product and exhibit previews
The world's largest composites trade show, JEC Europe, is coming up next week, March 10-12 in Paris, France. CW received from some exhibitors a preview of the products and technologies that they will have on exhibit at the show.

JEC Europe 2015 preview: LaminaHeat
LaminaHeat LLC (Greenville, SC, US) is introducing a new addition to its line of thin, flexible heating materials called PowerFabric.

Current-carrying carbon fiber/polymer sheet
LaminaHeat LLC has introduced PowerFilm, which is made from a very thin, flexible, lightweight and homogeneous carbon fiber/polymer sheet with copper contact strips that enable current to be applied to generate evenly distributed and localized heat across the fiber/polymer sheet.
