Webinar: Advanced Composites for Energy Applications

Trelleborg Sealing Solutions experts are hosting a free-to-attend webinar to provide an in-depth look at these advanced composites and the advantages they offer. Two identical sessions are scheduled for May 11 at 5:00 pm Central European Summer Time (CEST) / 11:00 am Eastern Daylight Time (EDT) and May 13 at 2:00 pm CEST / 8:00 am EDT. 

Trelleborg’s advanced composites, including Continuous Fiber Reinforced Thermoplastics, outperform traditional chopped fiber and thermoset composites in aggressive environments, improving efficiency, reducing environmental impact, and extending service life for a wide range of energy applications. 

Attend this webinar to:

  • Discover how Continuous Fiber Thermoplastic Composites can outperform traditional chopped fiber or thermoset composites and metallic structures in aggressive operating environments, improving efficiency and performance 
  • Learn the advantages of selective reinforcement via Automated Fiber Placement, including complex shapes and customization to accommodate specific loading requirements
  • Discuss industry use cases, including composite bearings for low-friction wear applications and shields for structural strength, as well as applications requiring signal transparency
  • Learn how high-performance composites can improve efficiency and environmental impact through weight reduction, low friction, wear resistance, and extended service life
