Why Composites?

As their name suggests, composites are composed of different materials. This is why composite solutions are often superior to traditional materials. With the help of advanced composite design, premium materials, bonding techniques and state-of-the-art production methods, virtually any characteristics can be incorporated into a composite product.

GKN Aerospace Applied Composites AB develops and manufactures components and products with unique characteristics in terms of strength, rigidity and low weight. Add to this their unique resistance to fatigue, corrosion and temperature and climate fluctuations and the bottom line is that composites offer important benefits in several fields.
