Composite panels are used in many companies, including: Swedish trains Regina and Oresund and German trains Talent from Bombardier. Composites used in the manufacture of a modern public transport. For example, Stork Fokker develops the concept of "Modular Light Body." The basis of this concept – wall panels, reinforced with fiberglass strands. International Energy Agency is often mentioned in discussions such as these. In the picture presented Phileas, bus for public transport. 12 such buses in operation since 2003 in Eindhoven, Holland. And of course, composites – is an integral part of modern shipbuilding. From this do not just boats and yachts, but even warships! On photo – Swedish Navy corvette YS2000 length 73 meters and a displacement of 600 tons. Able to take any form, while maintaining the rigidity, strength and light weight, composites have been so material that has been used for years in structural components of the aerodynamic and stylish exterior panels on race cars and exotic supercars costing more than $ 500 000.

Thus, composite materials long and firmly entrenched in certain industries. However, the layperson this may be little known, because of the relative novelty of such technologies as applied to such areas as automotive industry. And now, let me tell you about the use of composites to protect your vehicle. Specialists of the St. Petersburg State Polytechnic University over the years developed composite crankcase protection for automobiles, manufacturing technology practiced and carried out the tests. As a result, mass production was a first in Russia … The composite crankcase Carbon The photo shows the composite crankcase for the Ford Focus 1.
