In the 1940s, the first boats were constructed with FRP composites. Copyright © 2020 Elsevier B.V. or its licensors or contributors. FRP composites are in use in many areas, such as aerospace, marine, automotive, military, construction, and consumer products. In contrast to metal fatigue, in which failure may be produced by a single crack or a small number of cracks that coalesce, the formation and propagation of fatigue damage in polymer matrix composites (PMC) is more complex, often involving multiple types of damage. Fibres. Polymers that are often used as composites are either thermoplastic polymers, thermosetting polymers or elastomers. Paper and cardboard honeycomb composites are commonly used as packing materials. The exact cut-of… Polymer composites with combined strength and thermal-resistant/UV sustainability properties have been developed and applied for use in various fields, such as aerospace, electrical engineering, and outdoor applications. With enhanced thermal and UV-resistant properties, currently polymer composites are well suited for UV-resistant and high-temperature applications due to their low cost, light weight, high strength, and easy processing ability when compared to conventional metal matrices. L. G. Plotkin and G. B. Shalun, Decorative Paper Laminated Plastics [in Russian], Lesnaya Prom-st’, Moscow (1968). A polymer composite is a multiphase solid material, where one of the phases has one, two, or three dimensions in different polymer matrices. This is due to the perfect orientation of reinforcing fibrils achieved in the bulk polymer phase and improved interfacial adhesion. Two types of polymers are used as matrix materials for fabrication composites: Thermosets (epoxies, phenolics) and Thermoplastics (Low Density Polyethylene (LDPE), High Density Polyethylene (HDPE), polypropylene, nylon, acrylics). The composite is often named by the reinforcing fibre, for instance, CFRP for Carbon Fibre Reinforced Polymer. This is a preview of subscription content, log in to check access.
