JEC Paris highlights
The news from this annual Parisian in-gathering of composites professionals is heavily weighted toward automotive lightweighting.

Thermoformable thermoplastic composites
Thermoplastic composites that can be shaped into finished parts via thermoforming are proliferating as the thermoforming process gains traction, particularly in aerospace manufacturing. The following short article and chart provide some guidance in terms of sourcing.
