8:00 AM - 8:45 AM Opening General Session: Composites Must Dig Down to Open New Markets
The era of easy opportunities to demonstrate composites in new market applications is now in the past. Today’s engineers, designers, and specifiers are required to learn more about new materials before the materials are selected for new applications. This means that material suppliers and manufacturers must invest more in both time and financial resources for testing and demonstration to bring products to new markets. In some applications, to have new materials and products accepted, standards must be developed, whether design or test methods to give engineers the information they need to specify composites that are safe and durable for the intended application. This presentation will take a look at how the composites industry has reacted to these challenges where digging down is necessary in order to build up new markets and opportunities to grow the composites market.
