In various sectors, composite materials can offer advantages thanks to their properties that are not possible with conventional materials. However, the limited awareness of these materials and their properties remains an obstacle to their (further) breakthrough. To promote the exchange of best practices, Sirris and Agoria Composites are organising a Composites Learning Network.

Composite materials are no longer unknown, but their potential for production is still too little known. What added value can composites bring to your products and how can you incorporate them into your product? In order to provide an answer to these questions and many more, Agoria Composites and Sirris are organising a learning network on this subject.

Fibre reinforced plastics (or composites) are gaining popularity in a wide range of industries due to their excellent properties, such as specific stiffness and strength and good resistance to environmental conditions. However, their complex structure brings also some challenges, detecting damage being one of them. This ninth white paper focusses non-destructive testing.

What are the keys to initialising the highest quality recycling and processing of large composite structures? In the closing event of the CompositeLoop project on 5 June, you will get a picture of the current state of affairs, the routes with the greatest potential and the flanking measures to support those.
