Reinforced plastics are composite materials made by reinforcing plastics with different types of fibers. Fibers used for reinforcing plastics include glass, carbon, or aramid, metals and other non metallic fibres such as paper, wood or asbestos. The emergence of new technologies has also contributed positively to the growth of reinforced plastics market.
Popular choice of polymer in reinforced plastics includes an epoxy, vinylester or polyester thermosetting plastic and phenol formaldehyde resins. However, other specialty polymers and engineering plastics are also being reinforced with fibers. Reinforced plastics play an important role in the aerospace, automotive, engineering, marine, and construction industries. Reinforced plastics are lightweight, strong, cost effective and robust materials hence they now play a significant role in design and development of light weight and fuel efficient automobiles. They are increasingly replacing metals in automobile and aerospace applications.
