composite materials reduce maintenance costs, extend component life and can lower transportation costs on other products, like carbon tubs that carry grapes to make wine and other agricultural containers. at aerocomposites, our team excels at prototyping and experimental composite design, along with manufacturing the actual parts.
some composite material manufacturing processes and end-products, such as braided composites, are very versatile and are replacing traditional engineering materials such as steel. braided composites have been used in air ducts, fuel lines, fan blades, and automotive shafts  and have been explored for orthopedic treatments  and for
composites consist of two distinct materials, which together improve product performance and/or lower production costs. composite materials typically include plated, clad, or coated metals, however the term 'composites' has evolved to mean a material containing a matrix, or base substance, and a reinforcement material.
fibrelite was founded on two simple principles: uncompromising quality and endless innovation. in 1980, we designed the world’s first composite manhole cover for esso uk (exxonmobil) – eliminating manual handling and any other health and safety issues associated with traditional metal covers.

examples of composites products in nature are wood, bamboo and bone, and example of an early man-made manufactured composite is the combination of mud and st, which has been used for over 10,000 years. composite parts provide superior strength and stiffness while being light weight, and it can be formed into complex shapes.
cast polymer manufacturing is performed in an "open mold" system, in which synthetic and natural fillers are combined with a polyester resin binder to create a composite 'matrix'. this matrix is then poured into fiberglass molds which have been pre-treated with a gel coat that provides the waterproof protection on the product's surface.
