Ceramic matrix composites continue to spark interest in high-performance engineering markets – phenomenal growth is forecast in aerospace and defense, in particular, and North America is the leading market.


A number of leading exhibitors and speakers at Ceramics Expo & Conference 2018 will address the steady advance of ceramic matrix composites (CMCs), and rightly so as they remain an exciting materials group loaded with potential.

The CMC market was already headed towards $2 billion by 2016 and authors of one of the more recent reports reckon that figure will hit $7.5 billion by 2026, so it’s most definitely serious business. This family of materials – whether it is C/C, oxide/oxide or the increasingly employed SiC/SiC – offers a game-changing combination of lighter weight, ultra-high temperature capabilities, high strength, reduced cooling requirements,…

North America’s leading technical foam expo reveals a vibrant, growing industry

Foam Expo 2018 closed its doors in March, having proved yet again that this is the must-attend event for everyone involved in the technical foam manufacturing supply chain. 

The show featured 291 exhibitors displaying cutting-edge technologies and concepts to 4,859 visitors including representatives of industry titans such as Nike, Honeywell, Ford, Toyota, Amazon, BASF, Apple and Bose. The event attracted considerable international interest, with attendees flying in from all over the world, including Mexico, Japan and China in addition to more local visitors from the USA and Canada. Werner Van Peteghem of Recticel explained why his company had travelled from Belgium to exhibit at the show: “It’s a global market. We’re an important player in Europe but we want to be much more global. There is so much we can learn from both continents because the issues are the same for everyone. That’s what brings us here.”

Many companies were exhibiting at Foam Expo for the second time, following their overwhelmingly positive experience at the inaugural event in 2017. Dimitri Dounis of NCFI, a manufacturer of spray, OEM and flexible polyurethane foam, spoke for all…
