Composite Materials

Through a wide variety of formulations and manufacturing techniques developed by ARL, these materials were developed as new types of armor materials, packaging materials, support structures such as rotor blades, internal engine components, and many other military applications. They have since found their way into myriad commercial applications in the automotive, recreation, and sporting industries. Among the many products that owe their lightweight and superior strength to these ARL-developed technologies are masts and booms for sailing, the world's best hockey sticks, and new very low cost telephone poles.
