Green resins: Closer to maturity
As more players approach the market, R&D expands, but overall market growth in the composites arena is still slow but steady.

Bioresins: Not a tsunami, but more like a rising tide
This excerpt from an upcoming article in CW magazine shows that a lot of investigation is happening, and some promising applications are developing.

Composites U.K. promotes latest developments in biocomposites
The trade association for U.K. composites will host Oct. 23 workshop at the Advanced Manufacturing and Research Centre (AMRC).

Styrene & cobalt: Headed for the exit?
Fair or not, styrene and cobalt are now considered harmful to humans. Here's an update on the impact this issue poses for the composites industry and what resin and additive manufacturers are doing about it.

The matrix
The matrix material binds the fiber reinforcement, gives the composite component its shape and determines the quality of its surface. A matrix can be polymeric, ceramic or metallic. Polymer matrices are the most widely used for composites in commercial and high-performance aerospace applications.

Bio-composites update: Beyond eco-branding
No longer dependent only on their green credentials, some suppliers of bio-based fibers and resins are competing on price and performance.
