Fiera Milano RHOMilan . Italy
Textile reinforced composite materials are lightweight, stiff and strong. As such, they are increasingly used in various industries, including aerospace, construction, automotive and sports.
Although composite solutions have been showcased in past ITMA editions, consolidating them under a product sector will facilitate easier sourcing for buyers. With the launch of the composite product sector, ITMA 2023 will bring together the entire textile ecosystem through a leading-edge showcase of innovative technologies and materials, dynamic collaborations, robust discussions, live machinery demonstrations and innovation forums.
