Carbon fibre sheet - made from woven carbon fibres in a resin matrix. Aluminium composite - consists of two thin aluminium sheets with a polythene core between them. Hybrix® - described as 'stainless steel plus air', this is a laminar composite consisting of thin sheets of stainless steel surrounding a core of stainless steel fibres and air. PCM composite - are materials which contain a PCM, a phase change material. PCMs are used as 'energy buffers'. This sample is a piece of plasterboard containing microencapsulated PCM. Plywood - this is made of several thin layers of wood. Plywoods have a range of uses, depending on the type. Shape memory polymer composite - 'remembers' the shape it was given when cured: in this case, flat sheet. Kevlar textile - this is a lightweight reinforcement material which is combined with resin to give a tough but lightweight composite. Chameleon film - is made of hundreds of layers of polymer, and changes colour depending on the viewing angle. ETFE foil - is a tough, transparent material which can be printed on and laminated with other materials, or with other ETFE foils to produce ETFE cushions for cladding.
