For the CompoWorld foundation, which represents the interests of the joint composite companies in Flevoland (part of the Netherlands), we have to develop an overview book in collaboration with Graphein publisher. The book provides an overview from the start in 2012 till 2015, the year in which the book was published. It shows how strong these companies together are on the international composite market. Because the worldwide interest in these companies, the book is published in English.
A composite is a material made up from different components. Combinations of fibers in a resin that reinforce each other: the so-called fiber-reinforced plastics. A known fiber is the carbon fiber. Composite is used in aviation, motorsport, construction and whatever else. A plus of composite is that it is very light but also very strong. The new extension of the Amsterdam municipal museum, called 'the bathtub' by the locals, is also a composite product.
