Advanced composites: future proof performance materials
As the demand for cost effective alternatives to fossil fuels continues to gather pace so does one of its key drivers – reduce the weight in a moveable object and you reduce the power required to move it.
The use of composite components made from strong, versatile, lightweight and cost effective composite materials continues to experience strong growth. As such composites in aerospace engineering, automotive, energy saving solutions, next generation military vehicles, space exploration, UAVS and Unmanned Aerial Systems continues to experience strong growth.
