With 2022 now behind us, CW’s editor-in-chief Jeff Sloan takes a look at the CW stories last year that received the most reader attention.
The human race has a long history of developing materials, each one a little better than the one before it. Composites are among the latest in a long line, and proving highly adaptable to new opportunities.
As advanced air mobility expands and annual shipsets get into the thousands, the demand for composite propeller blades is expected to skyrocket. What are the implications for the composites supply chain?
The U.S. seems poised to invest heavily in infrastructure. Can the composites industry rise to the occasion?
It might be tempting to think of sustainability as a buzzword, but there are structural changes taking place in the composites industry that signal its permanence.
CW went to JEC World 2022 not sure what to expect. We were pleasantly surprised, and learned much about where and how new composites technologies are being developed.
