Example text

They are also used in the automotive industry in limited semistructural and structural applications such as body panels and composite springs. Glass/vinyl esters and/or polyester are used in the chemical industry for corrosion-resistant applications. Carbon fiber, aramid, and some of the other high-performance fibers (boron, silicon carbide) are used in recreation, industrial, and aerospace products, but they are most effective for uses in which performance is the primary consideration and cost the secondary.
