Syntactic foam sandwich fills hunger for lightweight yet strong materials

16 julio 2015

A team of researchers has developed the first composite material that sandwiches a layer of lightweight metal matrix syntactic foam between two carbon fabric layers, offering extreme light weight, flexibility, and the ability to withstand deformation and absorb energy. The material holds significant potential for automobiles, trains, ships, and other applications requiring lightweight structural components that retain their strength even when bent or compressed.img src=»» height=»1″ width=»1″ alt=»»/
