composite materials

composite materials in Culture
composite materials [(kuhm-poz-it)]

Materials, generally strong and lightweight, in which fibers of more than one sort of material are bonded together chemically. These types of materials were developed in the laboratory and derive their strength from the combination of materials rather than from the interlocking of a uniform set of atoms.
