The Word composite consisting of two or more distinct materials, having two or more distinct phases with different physical properties are noticeable different from the constituent properties. Of all composite materials the fabric type has evoked the most interest among embedded in matrix materials to form laminated composites. These have been used for centuries and today industrial innovation improved energy planning. Uncertain availability and ever increasing cost have created a greater interest in composites. The engineering importance of a composite material is that two or more distinctly different materials with dissimilar characteristics combine together to form a composite that is either superior or important in some other manner to the properties of the individual materials. Most of the composites have been created to improve combinational of mechanical characteristics such stiffness, wear resistance and mechanical properties.
