Composites have long been used in autos and trucks, primarily under the hood and in interiors. High-performance have used carbon fiber for many years, and now new high-speed manufacturing technology is allowing carbon fiber to move into production vehicles.
Composites One and the Closed Mold Alliance provide you with the latest information about closed mold technologies and the advantages, techniques and opportunities that the closed mold process has over open molding.
As more carbon composites are used on structural car components, how will crash damage be assessed and repairs be made?
