Aromatic Polyamide, also known as Aramid fibers are a class of heat-resistant and strong synthetic fibers. In this article we will discuss more details on the Aramid fibers. Aramid Fibers Aramid Fibers are used in aerospace and military applications, for ballistic-rated body armor fabric and ballistic composites, in bicycle tires, marine cordage, marine hull reinforcement, […]
What is Carbon Fiber? | Graphite Fiber
Carbon fiber is also sometimes called as the Graphite Fiber. It is an advanced fiber material, Synthetic, and inorganic in nature. Carbon Fiber History In 1860, Joseph Swan produced carbon fibers for the first time, for use in light bulbs 1879 when Thomas Edison baked cotton threads or bamboo silvers at high temperatures, which carbonized […]
What are the different types of Glass Fiber?
Glass fibers are the advanced fibers which are synthetic fibers and inorganically prepared. Fibers are used as reinforcement in the Composite materials. Glass Fiber is one of the most common advanced fibers in the composites industry. We have discussed the different types of Glass Fiber in this article. Types of Glass Fiber Depending upon the […]
What is a Reinforcement and Matrix in composites?
The word “composite” means “consisting of two or more distinct parts”. Thus a material having two or more distinct constituent materials or phases may be considered to be a composite material. Reinforcement and the matrix are the two phases of the composite material. However, we recognize materials as composites only when the constituent phases will not […]
What is a Composite material? | Advanced Composites
The word “composite” means “consisting of two or more distinct parts”. Thus a material having two or more distinct constituent materials or phases may be considered to be a composite material. However, we recognize materials as composites only when the constituent phases will not dissolve into one another and have significantly different physical properties, and […]
