Composites are the materials for the future

From basic organic materials such as adobe mud bricks to complex composites such as glass-fiber-resin forced panels,composite materials have evolved rapidly over the past centuries and a life without them would be unimaginable today.

Lightweight materials

Due to their eco-friendliness,safety and fuel-saving potential in the automotive sector,composite materials are key to modern vehicle production.Traditional heavy and labor-intensive materials like steel do not contribute to these goals.

Therefore,the incorporation of lightweight composite materials,such as Zhongyi’s Glass Fabric,in vehicles is becoming a common design practice to reduce vehicle weight and achieve fuel savings.

Application

The defence industry sets high quality standards for obvious reasons.Mobility,ease of use and ballistic properties are fundamental requirements in this sector.Glass fiber panel make with Zhongyi intrinsically offer many possibilities for intelligent applications in military equipment.Each mission requires its own approach in design and construction. Because of their drapeability,strength and lightweight yet rigid structure,Glass Fabrics have been chosen for the production of defence vehicles.For example,the U.S. Army uses them for the MATV defence vehicles, specially designed for moving around in the rugged terrains of Afghanistan.Using this reinforcement,designers have achieved a significant weight reduction of 75% in critical,exposed parts of the MATV.

Properties

The characteristics of Zhongyi’s glass fiber core material highly contribute to building lighter vehicles,thus reducing fuel consumption with a positive effect on CO2 emissions. Zhongyi’s engineered fabrics are specifically tailored to the required application.Their drapeability also significantly enhances design freedom,which makes the creation of complex shapes easier as never before
