Composites ushering in a new age

When the goal is to create a structure, which must be durable and strong as well as light, the solution lies in composites.

A composite is a structure, in which several different materials are combined to form a single, functional structure. The materials can be foams, metal, wood, carbon fibre, ara- mid and fibreglass, and resins. In addition to light weight, the advantage of a composite structure is its superior formability over more conventional structural materials. It can be shaped and contoured to perform seemingly impossible tasks. Thanks to this formability, composites have countless applications – the only limit is your imagination.
