Hybrid Composites Materials

by Global Market Research Analyst

Composites made up of two or more reinforcement fibers are hybrid composites. Among the most common hybrid composites are carbon-aramid reinforced epoxy and glass-carbon reinforced epoxy. Many interior and exterior applications of the automobile industry utilize hybrid composites. They enhance the functional requirements simply by replacing the existing material, using simple manufacturing methods of fabrication techniques.

Berlin-based Carbon Mobile created a carbon fiber composite case for mobile phones. The four-year development program “Hybrid Radio Enabled Composite Material”, has been a success for the company. It is a lightweight material with the rugged properties of carbon fiber. It includes complimentary radio-enabled glass fiber to ensure signal capabilities from a 0.6mm stack of three layers of carbon fiber fabric fused with a silver inkjet antenna support system.

Another major concern in the United States is organ transplant, with a waitlist of nearly 107,000 people. The holy grail of eliminating supply issues has often been touted as 3D bioprinting organs. This involves layering patient stem cells one by one in a biocompatible material to create an organ-like structure. The scaffolding material, usually collagen or a synthetic plastic that mimics collagen, programs the stem cells to differentiate into specific cell types. By this method, a hybrid composite can be implanted into a patient.

Recently, Oakland University partnered with the University of Tennessee-Knoxville and the Georgia Institute of Technology on collaborative research designed to advance engineering research. The National Science Foundation is supporting the establishment of the Industry-University Cooperative Research Center for Composite and Hybrid Materials Interfacing (CHMI). The market database states that researchers at each site will concentrate on a different application thrust and sector of the U.S. economy. Tennessee Knoxville will focus on biomedical and infrastructure technology, Georgia Tech on aerospace, and Oakland on autonomous vehicles and farming equipment. The research focuses on material joining, dissimilar-material compatibility, contact surface treatment, corrosion protection, and non-destructive testing and inspection. It aims to reduce the cost, cycle time, and performance variation of hybrid composite material interfaces over the coming years.
