DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/h3tqs5/markets_for_smart) has announced the addition of the "Markets for Smart Composites: 2015 to 2022" report to their offering.
Smart composites leverage the commercial success of the composite technology model and apply it specifically to smart materials. In regular composites two materials are combined to create a new material with functionality that is significantly different to the original materials. Typically, a smart composite is a smart material embedded in polymer, textiles, metal or concrete. In a few cases, smart composites are fabricated from two dumb materials that become smart only when they are combined.
Materials and Technology:
- Shape memory alloys
- Magneto-restrictive materials
- Electro-restrictive materials
- Carbon and optical fiber
- Thermoelectric and thermally responsive materials
Applications and Markets for Smart Composites:
- Energy storage
- Sensing and diagnostics
- Self-healing surfaces
