Ceramic Matrix Composites
Ceramic Matrix Composites

Ceramic-matrix composites (CMCs) comprise a ceramic matrix reinforced by a refractory fiber, such as silicon carbide (SiC) fiber. CMCs offer low density, high hardness and superior thermal and chemical resistance.

Composite Wood Such as Plywood
Composite Wood Such as Plywood

In wood: Plywood and laminated wood Plywood and laminated wood are both made of layers (laminae) of wood glued together. The basic difference is that in plywood the grain of alternate layers is crossed, in general at right angles, whereas in laminated wood it is parallel.

Metal Matrix Composites
Metal Matrix Composites

A metal matrix composites (MMC for short) is a kind of composite materials with at least two constituent parts, and one of the constituents shall be metal one. While the other material may be a different metal or another kind of material, such as a ceramic or glass fiber something.

Reinforced Plastics, Such as Fibre
Reinforced Plastics, Such as Fibre

Fiber-reinforced plastic (FRP) is a composite material made up of polymer that is supported with fibers for added strength. It is commonly used in industries such as aerospace, construction and marine to build structures that require added resistance to force in order to prevent deformation.
