Composites & Carbon Fiber Reinforced Plastics (CFRP)
To reduce weight and increase fuel economy, aerospace and automotive designers are increasingly using lightweight composite materials such as carbon fiber reinforced plastics (CFRP). CFRPs offer high strength with reduced weight making them ideal for high-performance applications.
Thorough characterization of composites is essential to ensure effective modeling and safe adoption of these new materials in final products. Shimadzu offers a complete range of characterization tools to evaluate the mechanical and thermal behavior of composites.
