What are composites?
Advanced composites are characterized by the use of high-performance resin systems and high-strength, high stiffness fiber reinforcement. There are a number of exotic resins and fibers used in advanced composites, however, epoxy resin and reinforcement fiber of aramid, carbon, or graphite dominates the market.
These materials have been adopted for use in many industries including aerospace, automotive, wind energy and sporting goods. The $70 billion a-year industry is growing 8% annually. The Advanced Composites Manufacturing Association estimates that more than 50,000 new products could utilize advanced composite materials.
