Wide range applications
The future belongs to advanced fiber reinforced composites
One of the great strengths of composites is that the properties are adjustable according to design and engineering parameters. Each year, advanced composite materials find their way into hundreds of new applications, from aircraft, missiles and spacecraft to simple consumer goods. Advanced composites offer an increasing array of potential uses as a material and system solution.
A composite material may be insulating or electrically or thermally conductive, it has a coefficient of thermal expansion that is specific to the intended application and can be optimized for energy absorption or to reduce impact sound. It can have very complex geometries such as double curvatures and large dimensions and can incorporate many features like inserts, decorative or protection elements, etc. It finds applications in "low cost" as well as "high tech" sectors. Below we present a list of some applications of this incredible “material”:
