Composite Enclosures Advance in Performance: Lighter, Stronger, More Capable


While the idea of composites and their use in the aerospace and defense industry is well established, new capabilities and new material formulations make the use of composite electronic enclosures deserving of another look. Replacing metal enclosures with composites gives you all the mechanical and electrical benefits of metal, but with the added bonuses of lower weight, corrosion resistance, and lower costs. Republished from Aerospace Manufacturing and Design, March 2013
