11.Forum Title: Plastic and Composite Components Forum

12.Brief Description of Forum:

   This forum was established to provide users with information on the
   use of thermoplastic and thermoset composite materials in "volume
   produced" components.  

13.Welcome Message to Our Friends:

   Welcome to our new forum!  We intend to provide you with a place to
   discuss and learn about the use of composite materials.  We can discuss
   materials, processes, various applications, and the cost competitiveness
   of these materials in a volume manufacturing. 

   I personally hope that you find this forum useful and that all will
   contribute where they can.

   Best Regards,

   Carl Howarth
