NetComposites plans to hold a new conference focusing on hybrid composite solutions within sectors such as automotive, aerospace, rail and energy.

The Multicomp conference, which will explore the opportunities, challenges and trends of employing these materials, will take place on 14-15 June 2017, in Nottingham, UK.

‘It is often the case that the optimum balance of performance and cost is obtained through the use of multimaterial assemblies of composites, metals and polymers,’ the company said in a press release. ‘Hybrid material structures that exploit the principle of using 'the right material in the right place' provide new design opportunities, and are often a stepping stone to the more widespread adoption of high performance materials such as composites.
