Composites: Classification and its manufacturing process
Priyanka Kesarwani, Shahnaz Jahan, Kirti Kesarwani
Composites are the engineered materials made from two or more constituent materials, with significantly different physical and chemical properties and which remain distinct and separated at the microscopic level within the finished structure. These are becoming more and more important because of its increased utility. They have properties which could not be achieved by either of the constituent materials alone. Composites include a wide range of the products for different application ranging from construction, automobile components, furniture and insulation panel made from different fibers, particles and textiles (woven or non-woven textiles). Considerable growth has been seen in the production and use of composites made from natural fiber in the construction and automotive industry, but application in other sectors has been limited. The unconventional fibers and other bio-renewable resources offer an almost limitless supply of renewable and potentially sustainable raw materials for the production of composites. Also the introduction of new fibers, with different bioresins and additives may well result in an expansion in their use into more diverse, and technically demanding application areas.
