composites. composites can be divided roughly into two groups: synthetic materials reinforced with short fibres, and synthetic materials reinforced with long continual fibres. in fibre reinforced plastic materials, the properties of the fibres are used to resist tensile and compressive loads, while the plastic the matrix material transfers shear.
composites will continue to be a more expensive material alternative compared to metal alloys. as carbon or other reinforcement fiber, high performance resins, and converision and fabrication costs are reduced, then wider scale adoption in the automotive industry will occur. automotive composites - part 2 materials properties and performance
unique materials. as with inorganic-fiber composites, small amounts of other materials can be added to wood-plastic composites wpcs to improve processing and performance. additives may include coupling agents, light stabilizers, pigments, lubricants, fungicides, and foaming agents.

engineering composites mechanical properties composite materials include some of the most advanced engineering materials today. the addition of high strength fibers to a polymer matrix can greatly improve mechanical properties such as ultimate tensile strength, flexural modulus, and temperature resistance.
part of sme's composites manufacturing processes video series, composite materials features a detailed explanation of the important mechanical properties of thermoset fiber-reinforced composites.
material, the material is anisotropic. composites are a subclass of anisotropic mate-rials that are classified as orthotropic. ortho-tropic materials have properties that are different in three mutually perpendicular directions. they have three mutually perpendicular axes of sym-metry, and a load applied parallel to these axes
a polypropylene pp reinforced milled carbon fibre mcf was developed to produce high conductive polymer composites. theoretically, by altering the filler orientation, the electrical conductivity and mechanical properties can be controlled. however, the orientation techniques which influence the mcf fibre are difficult to performed.
basic physical and mechanical properties of fibres and matrix materials used in this study are listed in table 1 and 2. notations for the prepared composites are as follows: composite 1: f1s1 fibre f1 boron with thermosetting plastic s1 polyimide composite 2: f1s2 fibre f1 boron with thermosetting plastic s2 lm polyester
composite made from carbon fiber and epoxy resin is a material with heat conductivity x 40 times less than aluminium and 10 times less than steel. therefore the assumption may be made that carbon fiber is a very good insulator.

chemical and weathering resistance. because of this, composites are used in the manufacture of chemical storage tanks, pipes, chimneys and ducts, boat hulls and vehicle bodies. fdl manufactured architectural panels for the construction of the auckland marine rescue centre. composite panels were chosen because of their ability to withstand salty sea side conditions without corrosion.
a composite material, with anisotropic properties, can have additional reinforcement in the direction of stresses, and this can create more efficient structures at lighter weights. for example, a pultruded rod having all fiberglass reinforcement in the same parallel direction could have tensile strength upwards of 150,000 psi.
