Composites are materials that are made from two or more different substances, each with its own unique properties. These components can be combined to form a stronger and lighter material than the individual components alone, making them useful for many applications in various industries.
Types of Composites
The type of composite used depends on the application. For example, reinforced composites use strong raw materials such as fiberglass, carbon fiber, and Kevlar to create a lightweight but strong material. Foam composites combine foam and other materials to create a softer yet durable material.
How Composites are Made
Composite raw materials must be carefully selected for their specific application. The most common methods for creating composites involve using resins and heat or pressure to bond the materials together. Vacuum bagging is another popular technique that uses vacuum pressure to shape and form the composite.
Industries that use Composites
Composite materials are used in many industries, including aerospace, automotive manufacturing, sporting goods production, marine engineering, medical device design and fabrication. Professionals who work with these materials often have specialized skills related to working with composite raw materials in order to produce effective results.
