Are composites the way forward?

Glass/Carbon composite mat

We at MULE attended a crash course in Composite manufacturing hosted by a few fine fellows at the City of Bristol College, to look into the potential use of carbon/glass fibre resin composites.

This composite mat comprises 4 layers of glass fibre matting layered between 2 layers of carbon fibre matting. The tensile strength of this material can potentially withstand many tons of force. Its flexural strength however is nowhere near as impressive.
