Transition from thermoset to thermoplastic composites in road and rail transportation equipment

This presentation was given at the Thermoplastic Composite Convention in April 2020 and  will explore why road transportation equipment has transitioned from structural thermoset composites to structural thermoplastic composites as a solution for serial production.

Thermoset composite structures meet technical boundaries that can be pushed back with Thermoplastic composite structures. Structural thermoplastic composites are already in use in Aerospace and smaller parts in automotive (over molding)  but are still open territory in other applications.
