Also this year the TCKT was represented at the world largest plastics engineering conference, which was located in Indianapolis, Indiana, USA, this year. More than 500 lectures in about 15 parallel sessions made a detailed plan necessary, especially not to miss the own lecture. From the TCKT two topics were presented: Blanca Lekube gave a lecture in the “Composite Session” about „Properties and modeling of partially compacted, commingeld polypropylene glass fiber fleece composites“, Christoph Burgstaller in the session „Alloys und Blends“ about „The influence of blend composition and additive type on the properties of LDPE-PA6-blends“. Both lectures had excellent feedback, represented also by the follow-up questions asked by the audience. From our point of view the conference was absolutely successful, also to meet other researchers to discuss ideas and approaches, and we are looking forward to the next issue in 2017.
