Performance Composites is a full service composites manufacturer providing engineered composite products to leading OEMs for various industries. We offer engineering, analysis, design assistance, process development, tooling fabrication, composite fabrication, assembly and project management. Performance Composites is an employee owned company and every owner/employee is dedicated to provide our customers with high-quality, cost-effective composite solutions with superior service and on-time delivery.
Composite products are made by combining two materials where one is the reinforcement (such as carbon fiber) and the other is a matrix (such as thermoset epoxy resin). The combination of the fiber and matrix results in composites material characteristics superior to either material used alone. Examples of composites products in nature are wood, bamboo and bone, and example of an early man-made manufactured composite is the combination of mud and straw, which has been used for over 10,000 years.
Composite parts provide superior strength and stiffness while being light weight, and it can be formed into complex shapes. Ideal applications are large complex-shaped structures such as fiberglass covers. Composites products are widely used in many applications where high performance and great mechanical properties are required such as aerospace, race cars, boating, sporting goods, and industrial applications. The wide range of available glass and resin combinations makes it an ideal material to achieve specific performance requirements. As a result, composite materials are replacing metal and plastic in many industries and is the material of choice for many new applications.
