Special Issue "Processing and Thermal Properties of Hybrid Composites"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 January 2021.
Interests: polymer processing; reactive processing; polymer recycling; biodegradable polymers; composites and nanocomposites; fillers; active modifiers
This Special Issue of Materials, “Processing and Thermal Properties of Hybrid Composites”, will be focused on unusual materials, namely, hybrid composite materials. The term “hybrid” is generally understood as an object made from two or more different elements. Hybrid composite materials are defined as composites consisting of at least two dissimilar materials embedded in either a thermosetting or thermoplastic polymer matrix. What makes these materials so unique that intensive research is undertaken into their design and manufacture? The reason is their exceptional properties, which are superior to their nonhybrid counterparts.
Thus, the aim of this Special Issue is to publish and disseminate original research data, review articles, and communications that focus on new advances, challenges, and outlooks concerning the processing and properties, especially thermal, and application of hybrid polymer composites.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Materials is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2000 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
