Status and Future of Fibre Composites

  • G. Hartwig
Part of the An International Cryogenic Materials Conference Publication book series (ACRE, volume 40)


The treatment of fibre composites with a polymeric matrix will be subdivided into four sections. They involve processing, the properties of fibres and matrices and less well-known composite properties. Important cryogenic applications are briefly described and supplemented by strategies for gaining more applications.
  • Let us try Advanced Fibre Composites
