Hi dear
Nice information you have posted. I also want to add some more about Composite Materials.
Composite materials, often shortened to composites, are engineered or naturally occurring materials made from two or more constituent materials with significantly different physical or chemical properties which remain separate and distinct at the macroscopic or microscopic scale within the finished structure. In recent years Global chemical industry is about $1.5 trillion and global composites industry is over $65 billion industry. Now a day’s Composite Materials becomes very important and generally used at every place.

Thanks
