The Future of Composites: Breaking Down the Barrier to Entry Rock West Composites will be the first to admit that the best way to promote composite products like carbon fiber is to talk about their high strength, stiffness and ultra-lightweight properties. Just about everyone in manufacturing knows that carbon fiber products have very high specific strength and stiffness. But there is more to it than that. The future of composites relies on developing the products of the future rather than resting on the laurels of the past. While we make our money on complex molded composite parts, as well as carbon fiber tubes and plates, we also know that the future of composites holds the promise of many more applications. It's time our industry started looking toward that future. Making it to the future depends on solving some of the problems we currently face. Those problems include cost and waste. Finding effective solutions to bring down the cost of carbon fiber will widen its viable applications. Likewise, coming up with a way to recycle waste will bring down the cost of manufacturing and fabricating. Finding New Applications for Composites It is understood that the high cost of carbon fiber manufacturing is one of the key things preventing the auto industry from embracing composites. So what if we could bring down the cost and make recycling viable? We could probably convince car manufacturers to dive into the composite waters head first. If they are able to save money (or dramatically reduce weight at slightly higher cost), then automakers would likely jump at the chance to embrace carbon fiber. It is as simple as that. But let's move a bit further. Reducing costs and improving recycling would open the door to research into new applications. For example, a number of high-heat applications are out of bounds for standard grade carbon fiber epoxies. This includes duct work in semiconductor plants, waste treatment facilities, and even commercial painting operations.
