Composites are a reinforcing fiber in a polymer matrix that commonly needs to be cured to set the matrix. Many industries have realized the benefits of composites such as transportation, construction, marine, infrastructure, and aerospace.
Benefits of Composite Materials
- High Strength
- Light Weight
- Corrosion Resistant
- Design Flexibility
Composite materials are used in high-performance products that need to be lightweight, yet strong enough to handle harsh loading conditions.
- Aerospace components such as tails, wings, fuselages, propellers as well as the new Boeing 787 structure which is composed largely of composites.
- Boat and scull hulls
- Bicycle frames
- Racing car bodies
- Other uses include fishing rods, storage tanks, and baseball bats.
The composites industry continues to grow as manufacturers find new applications for composite materials. Wisconsin Oven provides composite curing ovens with specific composite curing options that ensure the highest quality cure and part quality.
