Composite materials by definition, are a combination of two fiber-reinforced polymer matrix materials, such as carbon, fiberglass, Kevlar or other fibers, joined by epoxy resin – the polymer. Thus a new material is created with new features such as high strength, temperature resistance and low weight. These features can be preliminarily calculated and designed, and allow the application to utilize strength over weight: a distinct advantage in the composite materials industry for aviation.
Composite materials retain their unique features even after assembly / bonding and do not mix with each other. They are also visible, and in some cases can be even separated from each other.
Production with composite materials (carbon fibers, glass fibers and Kevlar) allows flexibility regarding form and features, and encourages ingenuity in production and results that cannot be reproduced in the manufacturing process even with the use of b sophisticated machinery. The variety of applications for these materials provide solutions for various industries and requires careful and preliminary planning.
The advanced application technologies include wet placement of composite material fabrics, use of pre-impregnated (prepreg) (epoxy resin-soaked fabrics) fabrics, pressing, coating, etc.
