A composite material is an anisotropic, heterogeneous medium, made by combining two or more materials with differing properties. Properties of the composite are different do not merge completely into each other and can be physically identified alongwith the interface between them. The properties of the interface also contribute to the properties of the composite.

Present day engineering materials must combine good mechanical, chemical, electrical and thermal properties, apart from having good aesthetic characteristics. Several of these properties are expected in a single material when very high mechanical properties were required. The need for composites arose when marked increase in performance of metals could no longer be achieved at reasonable developmental cost.

Composite is the material for the future and finds application in almost each and every industry.
