The List of Composite Materials: Natural Composites That Are Commonly Used

There are lots of different types of composite materials, but what is a composite material? A composite material is a simple combination of two or more materials, usually with different properties used across various industries. So, read on for a list of composite materials and to learn more about them. List of Composite Materials Composite materials are […]

Woven Carbon Fiber: An Evolution of Practical Applications

Strong, light, and stiff, woven carbon fiber has been used within manufacturing for many years. Woven carbon fiber comprises carbon fiber forerunners such as rayon and polyacrylonitrile (PAN) chemically heated, treated, stretched, and carbonized. Therefore, creating high-strength fibers that are popular with engineers and designers within the manufacturing world. Let’s examine this substance in more […]

An Introduction to the Resin Infusion Process

The resin infusion process is a process used in the composite field. The resin is used to fill any holes or gaps in material that may cause issues later on during the finishing process. When you’re researching the resin infusion process, you might not be able to find a complete guide of how it works, […]

Compression Molding: How It Works

  Compression molding is a standard process used to make stock shape thermoplastic and thermoset materials and parts. Broadly speaking, you put a pre-heated plastic material into an open, heated mold cavity. The mold is then closed by a hydraulic press and compressed. This ensures the content in the mold comes into contact with all […]

The Properties of Resin and Fiber Composites and Why They’re Beneficial

Fiber composites materials have been through many types of composite manufacturing. There is great potential in carbon fiber material, which, when combined with a resin matrix, offers new advantages for strength and weight especially compared to industry staples like iron, steel, aluminum, and titanium. So, read on to learn more about carbon fiber cloth and resin and […]
