There are numerous methods for fabricating composite components. Some methods have been borrowed (injection molding from the plastic industry, for example), but many were developed to meet specific design or manufacturing challenges faced with fiber-reinforced polymers.

Selection of a method for a particular part, therefore, will depend on the materials, the part design and end-use or application. A high-performance polymer matrix composite (PMC) consists of a thermoset or thermoplastic resin matrix reinforced by fibers that are much stronger and stiffer than the matrix.

1 Structural fibers that may be used as the reinforcement phase include carbon, aramid, glass, and many others. PMCs are attractive because they are lighter, stronger, and stiffer than conventional materials, with the.

High performance synthetic composites are light-weight, but provide higher performance. Their use to reduce weight in automotive, aerospace and other transport applications can deliver savings in running costs and more significantly, carbon emissions, helping increase resource efficiency and drive our shift to low carbon vehicles.
