Advanced Composites

materials and coatings
Innovative, lightweight materials ideal for industrial, automotive, marine, and energy uses

Characterized by ultra-high-strength fibers, NASA's state-of-the-art composites include numerous polymer, nanoparticle, and polymer-fiber blends that:

  • Enhance strength
  • Resist damage
  • Toughen materials
  • Increase material lifetime

Developed to increase fuel economy and reduce manufacturing costs in aerospace applications, these advanced composites are ideal for industrial, automotive, marine, and energy uses.
