SKZ Composite Essentials

"An intensive and highly practical 1 Day course."

This course is designed for those who are new to the composite industry and executives with a commercial background who are dealing with composite materials in their daily business.

The SKZ Composite Essentials module provides a solid foundation for understanding the types and properties of composite materials, manufacturing and processing technologies of composites, as well as quality assurance of composites. You will learn key terminologies that will help you communicate and solve problems within the composite industry.

Key areas covered:

  • Plastics materials: classification, chemical structure and physical behavior
  • Characteristics of fiber reinforced materials and areas of application
  • Global market for composites
  • Matrix Systems (polyester, epoxy, vinyl ester, phenolic)
  • Reinforcing fibers (glass, carbon, synthetic and natural fibers)
  • Textile semi-finished products (roving, matts, woven fabrics, multiaxial fabrics)
  • Process technologies for composite materials (from hand lay-up, over vacuum infusion and RTM to prepreg processing)
  • Sandwich construction
