High performance through advanced materials and technologies
Composite materials are used in sectors such as aerospace and automotive because they offer improved performance characteristics such as stiffness and better strength to weight ratio. For the automotive sector this is an enabler for improved performance, fuel saving and reductions in emissions. Savings in running expenses typically result in a compelling business case for carbon fibre usage, based on whole life costs.
