What are Composite Materials?
When two or more materials with very different properties
are combined together they form a composite material.
The different materials work together to produce a new material,
which combines all of the properties of the previously separate
materials. Within the composite it is still possible to easily
tell the different materials apart. They do not tend to blend
or dissolve into each other.
Composite Materials can be either man-made but they may also
exist in nature.
