Plastic and Composite Application in Mechanics

Acquire basic knowledge of plastic and composite materials and their industrial applications


Polymers, as plastics or composites, offer numerous advantages in weight, fatigue resistance, and corrosion resistance. Come and learn about the potential of materials in the mechanical industry to be able to list the advantages and disadvantages of the main polymer families and know how to choose the right process based on the types of pieces, while having an informed look at the environmental impact.

  • Identify different plastics and composites and their applications
  • Talk about the specifics, advantages and disadvantages of plastic and composite materials
  • Talk about the different processes of implementation as well as advantages and their limits
