Following the success of the Special Issue of Polymers, "Progress in Polymer Composites for Different Applications", https://www.mdpi.com/journal/polymers/special_issues/polymer_compo_applications, we are delighted to reopen this Special Issue, now entitled " Progress in Polymer Composites for Different Applications II".
Polymer composites were developed to simultaneously obtain materials with high strengths and low densities. Depending on the type of filler composite, either with fibers or particles, hybrid composites can be produced. Recently, much research has been undertaken into hybrid composites, where two or more fillers reinforce a matrix. The primary purpose is to overcome the disadvantages of a single reinforcement by adding another type of filler. Moreover, the price and the ecological aspect are essential when designing a new material.
As Guest Editor, it is my pleasure to invite you to contribute to this Special Issue with your most recent results in this field of research. Research articles, as well as reviews on the topics of interest, are both accepted for this Special Issue. Topics can include, but are not limited to:
- Novel fillers and their impact on polymer composites performance properties;
- Polymer composites characterization, especially using novel research techniques;
- Processing of polymer composites for use in different applications, such as the building, automotive, aviation, railway industry, etc.;
- New applications of polymer composites or the improvement of existing solutions.
- Chemical modifications of polymer composites and their effects on performance.

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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. Polymers 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 2700 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.
