Composite materials make up a large portion of components we come in contact with everyday such as roads, buildings, cars and airplanes, and some hobbies. This class seemed like an excellent choice for me when considering my field of interest relies greatly on the implementation of advanced composite materials.

Resistance to a wide range of chemical agents including acid rain and salt spray, conditions under which metal parts would suffer. This results in much reduced maintenance and repair costs. 2. Resilience the ability to deform and spring back to their original shape without major damage. Shape memory and impact

Used for structural purposes, composite has the advantage of combining a number of properties not usually found together in a single material. In particular it combines high strength and low weight, while at the same time it is non-corrosive and has thermal and electrical insulation properties. It can also be machined like

From mudbricks to concrete to surfboards, composite materials are all around us.

Learn some key advantages & benefits of composite materials that include design flexibility, lower material costs, improved productivity and more.

Added strength is the most common reason for making a composite, but it's not the only one. Sometimes, we're looking to make a material better in a different way. For example, we might need an airplane part with better fatigue resistance than we'd get from a metal, so it doesn't snap (like a paperclip) when

The most important reason why we need composite materials is the versatality in their properties which enables them to be applied in large number of fields. Other reasons are their light weight Here are some advantages of composites to illustrate the need of composite materials in brief. Design Flexibility
