Composite Materials

An increasingly important innovation in the aerospace industry is the use of composite materials, as these enable designers to overcome the barriers created by using metals. … Composites are essentially materials made up of 2 or more phases or constituent parts, predominantly plastics reinforced with carbon fibers.  Composite materials are important to the Aviation Industry because they provide structural strength comparable to metallic alloys, but at a lighter weight. This leads to improved fuel efficiency and performance from an aircraft.  ZSquared offers composite materials designed for aerospace, automotive and industrial applications. These quality composites and related products include vacuum bagging support materials, reinforcements, insulation molding compounds and prepregs, thermal and acoustic insulation materials, plastic extrusions, seals, strips and silicone sheets.
