A better way to build

Abstract:
They generally cost more than similar metal parts, but as the prices of raw materials for metals have gone up, composites are making more economic sense to use, said Phil Mowry, vice president of the National Composite Center. The addition of nanomaterials, particles far smaller than human hairs, can create new composites with different physical characteristics that contribute to new products.

Mowry estimates that the composites industry has an economic impact in the Dayton region of 2,000 jobs and $150 million annually, counting jobs from raw materials to research, tooling and production of composite ingredients or end products.
