Thermal Performance



Thermal Performance

Composite materials typically provide thermal insulation, primarily because of resin properties. Emerging technologies are being used to increase resin thermal conductivity properties to increase heat dissipation properties of composite structures. Specialty materials can be used to manufacture components that have the thermal conductivity of copper, but only in the direction of the unidirectional carbon fibers.
