Composites are materials made from (at least) two materials with different properties, which constitute matrix and reinforcement. The most common matrices are polymers, and to reinforce composites are used synthetic and natural fibers. Composites posses unique properties, which exceed the properties of the raw materials. Composites are used e.g. in transportation, construction and medicine.
