CPI are exhibiting at the Aerospace Sector Showcase which will look at recent success stories and technical developments in composites for the aerospace industry

CPI are exhibiting at Aerospace Sector Showcase. Come and visit our stand to hear about our latest developments in graphene-based composites.

About this event

Fibre reinforced polymer composites (FRPs) are used in aerospace in applications such as engine blades, brackets, interiors, nacelles, propellers/​rotors, single aisle wings, wide body wings and more. Join us for a series of case study presentations looking at recent success stories and technical developments, accompanied by twelve table-top exhibitors who already supply composite solutions into the aerospace industry.

Thank you to our event partners, the Northwest Aerospace Alliance. If you are a member or media organisation and would like to become a partner of this event please contact us.
