High Strain Composite (HSC) Structures are a type of composite material that are specifically designed to perform well in a setting in which they will experience a high deformation, or strain.
Chemical vapor infiltration (CVI) is a fiber-reinforced composite manufacturing process in which the matrix is introduced into the fibrous preform through the use of high-temperature reactive gases.
Epoxy granite is a composite material made of epoxy and granite. It has 10x better vibration dampening than cast iron and up to 3x better than natural granite.
Honeycomb structures are a lattice of hollow, thin-walled cells with relatively high compression and shear properties out-of-plane while boasting a low density.
Hybrid materials are a type of composite in which two components interact at the nanostructure or molecular level. They are used today in such varied applications as corrosion protection, various scratch-resistant and decorative coatings, and dental fillers.
Piezoelectric materials generate electric current when placed under stress and will change size or experience mechanical deformation upon being subjected to an electric current.
The demand for composites has grown in the sporting goods industry specifically in products such as skis, hockey sticks, fishing rods, and bicycles.
