DISTINCTIVE EATURES OF MCs 4 olymer Matrix Composites (PMC) : .i. DISTINCTIVE FEATURES OF PMCs The most common advanced composites are polymer matrix composites (PMC). These composites consist of a polymer (e.g., epoxy, polyester, acrylic, phenolic, urethane, polyamide) reinforced by thin-diameter fibers (e.g., glass, graphite, aramids (Kevlar), boron) . dvantages of PMCs: . low cost . high strength: i.e., graphite/epoxy composites are approximately five times stronger than teel on a specific (weight-for-weight) basis. . simple manufacturing processes....
