Composite matrix

The matrix is one of the elements that make up a composite product. The matrix is a macromolecular material that connects the various reinforcing fibres. In doing so, the matrix must distribute and transfer the stresses of the structure to the fibres. The intense connection between the matrix and the reinforcing fibres is the basis of any composite material. Many different resins can be considered for this matrix, such as polyesters, polyurethane, vinyl ester, epoxy and silicones.
