As we celebrate National Composites Week lets take some time to consider some of the ways composites contribute to one of humankind’s most sought after pursuits — the quest for constant entertainment.  

Composites play a role in the devices we use including laptops, tablets and cellphones. They are used in a wide array of sporting equipment from surfboards to golf clubs to tennis rackets.
