New types of composite materials are currently very important for use in lightweight structures with very high strength and resistance to external influences. Therefore, it is increasingly used for their properties in all areas of industrial production. Their application offers a significant weight savings and reduction of a manufacturing energy consumption. But current composite properties are not at maximum level, thus development efforts are focused on their improvements. One of the problems of new composites is a study and description of an interface between the phases. The paper describes experimental and FEM analysis dealing with mechanical properties at the micro level. Analyses were focused on a cohesion and the strain at the interface of the system fiber-matrix-core. These composites are used for components of car parts such as doors, diffusers, spoilers and more detailed description can be applied for the improving of mechanical properties of composite structures.
