To get the full benefits from composites you cannot consider them simply as a lightweight, black alternative to metals—the design must to be optimised to accommodate the unique characteristics of this class of material. Join us on Wednesday, March 29 to learn how to quickly identify the benefits and limitations of composite materials, and understand how a design may need to change to realise their true potential.

Register for this no-cost webinar to:

  • Discover how to access comparable data on fiber reinforced composites and more conventional materials
  • Learn how to quickly establish the benefits and limitations of composites
  • Understand how a component design will need to change to realise the full benefits of composites
  • See a demonstration focussed on replacing a metal alloy with a composite for an industrial application.
