Polymer Matrix Composites

Abstract

Polymer matrix composites (PMCs) have established themselves as engineering structural materials, not just as laboratory curiosities or the cheap stuff for making chairs and tables. This came about not only because of the introduction of high-performance fibers such as carbon, boron, and Kevlar, but also because of some new and improved matrix materials (see Chap. 3). Nevertheless, glass fiber reinforced polymer composites represent the largest class among PMCs. We discuss the carbon fiber reinforced polymer composites separately, because of their great importance, in Chap. 8. In this chapter we discuss polymer composite systems containing glass, Kevlar, and boron.
