"Look, complexity of shape and performance are strong assets of composites” Arnaud De-Mondenard R&D Manager alpine skis @ Salomon

We may not always realise it, but composite materials are already playing an important role in our lives. From the huge rotor blades powering offshore wind turbines to the planes, trains and cars we travel in, from infrastructure and architecture to tennis rackets, bicycles and skis, composites are to be found in an incredible range of applications all around the world. The versatility of these relatively new materials is a result of the unique combination of properties they offer, including high strength, lightweight, resistance to corrosion, and design flexibility. And these properties are becoming increasingly valuable in a world seeking more sustainable solutions to traditional materials.

With Composites Inside interviews, you’ll learn why composites are used in so many sectors, with key players in these markets, who discuss their experience with composites and what developments we can expect to see in the future.

JEC Group is a non-profit organization entirely dedicated to promoting composite materials and fostering their applications globally.
