What is a composite material ?

Updated: Jul 6, 2023

A composite is a combination of various components.



A composite is a combination of various components. In the industry, composite material are materials made by combining two or more natural or artificial elements (with different physical or chemical properties) that are stronger as a team than as individual players. The component materials don’t completely blend or lose their individual identities; they combine and contribute their most useful traits to improve the outcome or final product. Composites are typically designed with a particular use in mind, such as added thermal insulation, electric insulation, mechanical strength, durability, chemical resistance or more importantly manufacturability.


“In the industry, composite material are materials made by combining two or more natural or artificial elements that are stronger as a team than as individual players.”

Composites, also known as Fiber-Reinforced Polymer (FRP) composites, are made from a polymer matrix that is reinforced with an engineered, man-made or natural fiber (like glass, carbon, cotton or aramid) or other reinforcing material. The matrix protects the fibers from environmental and external damage and transfers the load between the fibers. The fibers, in turn, provide strength, stiffness, temperature or even fire resistance to reinforce the matrix—and help it resist cracks and fractures.
