CAMX 2014 exhibit previews, part 2
With CAMX 2014 less than a week away (Oct. 13-16, Orlando, Fla.), CompositesWorld offers a final glimpse of some of the products, technologies and services that you will find in booths in the Exhibit Hall. During the show, we'll keep you informed and up-to-date with the CAMX Show Daily, which will be distributed Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday at the show. Safe travels to Orlando and we look forward to seeing you at the conference and trade show.

CAMX 2014 preview: PlastiComp
PlastiComp Inc. (Winona, Minn.), a manufacturer of long fiber thermoplastic (LFT) materials and technologies, will highlight three recent innovations in its long fiber reinforced Complēt composite pellet products for injection molding and extrusion.

PlastiComp introduces carbon-glass hybrid LFT
The new hybrid composite pellet products combine long glass fiber and long carbon fiber together, bridging the performance gap between either fiber used alone.
