What are the main properties of composite materials?

Most of products are made from composite materials, such as composite insulator and colthes. Composite materials (also called composition materials or shortened to composites) are materials made from two or more constituent materials with significantly different physical or chemical properties, that when combined, produce a material with characteristics different from the individual components.

Nowadays, composite insulators are made of composite materials for high voltage, medium voltage and low voltage power lines.

The individual components remain separate and distinct within the finished structure. The new material may be preferred for many reasons: common examples include materials which are stronger, lighter or less expensive when compared to traditional materials.

Typical engineered composite materials include:
◆ Composite building materials such as cements, concrete
◆ Reinforced plastics such as fiber-reinforced polymer
◆ Metal Composites
◆ Ceramic Composites (composite ceramic and metal matrices)

Composite materials are generally used for buildings, bridges and structures such as boat hulls, swimming pool panels, race car bodies, shower stalls, bathtubs, storage tanks, imitation granite and cultured marble sinks and counter tops. But insulator for electricity is an important part in our lives. Composite suspension insulator is made of fiberglass resin.

The most advanced examples perform routinely on spacecraft in demanding environments.
