More About this Product
Reveal the emerging use of composite materials and how they can reduce our use of natural resources. This program introduces viewers to such composites as glass fiber, carbon fiber, and Kevlar. For each composite, students will see its raw materials, compare its stiffness and strength to existing products, watch as it is created and processed, and clarify its weaknesses and other properties. As students witness the wide range of materials available for manufacturing, they will be aware of how easy it is to reduce our reliance on natural resources.
