Case Study: Commercialization Application in Aerospace



Advantages of composite material


Reduces costs by an estimated 20 percent


Provides higher static strength, damage tolerance, corrosion resistance


Allows for higher pressurization in the passenger cabin, increasing the ability to regulate temperature,
humidity and ventilation


Provides an estimated fuel cost savings of more than 20,000 gallons a year
