Information Report on the activity:

The 11th edition of COMPOSITE-EXPO Exhibition organized by Mir-Expo Exhibition Company and The Union of Composites Manufacturers was held on February 27 - March 1, 2018 at Expocentre Fairgrounds, Moscow, Russia.

The increased interest in composite materials is accounted for the fact that in severe operation conditions environment composites are almost irreplaceable because of their mechanical strength, heat endurance, corrosion resistance and low density. Main competitive advantages of composites over traditional materials is chipless processing (casting, pressing, extrusion) with products of any shape that reduces the cost. Combinations’ variety of the different basic materials, their components and processing technologies are almost limitless and delimited only by the scientific progress.

All over the world specialists of different industries have done justice to high efficiency as well as high profit of composites while using. Russian composites market is in its infancy, the long term deployment is expected in the nearest future. That’s why we witness constant demand on COMPOSITE-EXPO show from Russian and foreign companies.
