Cutting-edge Composites: Materials for a New Era

By Mary Page Bailey |

The combination of advanced materials and processing techniques results in new composites that can aid industries in achieving increased levels of efficiency By their nature, composite materials lend themselves to a vast array of applications. A composite’s constituent materials and processing methods can be tailored to yield seemingly infinite combinations of physical and chemical properties. Although composites have long been essential in countless industries, technological advances continue to expand their reach, and industries are increasingly seeking out cutting-edge materials to increase operations’ sustainability. This article focuses on innovative composite materials and processing techniques designed for use in two major industries where sustainability and efficiency are key — wind power and aerospace.   FIGURE 1. As wind power becomes more universal, the manufacturing processes for turbine components must also grow more efficient[/caption] Elevating wind turbine efficiency A major application area for composite materials is in wind turbines (Figure 1). With the push for more renewable sources of energy, wind-farm construction has intensified in recent years. Wind turbines must be able to withstand continued…
