The 4th International Glass Fiber Symposium was held in Aachen from 29 to 31 October 2018. The aim of the event was to discuss the latest technologies and development in the glass fibre industry: from raw materials to finished products. Alongside many scientists from glass fibre research, decision-makers and company representatives of international and medium-sized businesses also participated in the symposium.

ISOLITE was also represented in Aachen, and made use of the opportunity to exchange ideas. As part of a lecture series, Irina Simon, R&D Project Manager, gave a talk on the topic “Inorganic insulation in the automotive industry”.
