Market Assessment of Polymer Matrix Composites

RVS Nagarajan


Polymeric composition compound with a plasticizer or very low proportion of pigment or processing aids are nonordinary consider as a composition the goal is to improve strength stiffness or toughness or dimensional stability by embedding particles in matrix or binding phase. Polymer-matrix composites are valued in the aerospace industry for their stiffness, lightness, and heat resistance. They are fabricated materials in which carbon or hydrocarbon fibres (and sometimes metallic strands, filaments, or particles) are bonded together by polymer resins in either sheet or fibre-wound form. Chief among the advantages of PMCs is their light weight coupled with high stiffness and strength along the direction of the reinforcement. This combination is the basis of their usefulness in aircraft, automobiles, and other moving structures. Other desirable properties include superior corrosion and fatigue resistance compared to metals. Because the matrix decomposes at high temperatures, however, current PMCs are limited to service temperatures below about 600°F (316°C).
