Incidentally, composites are also used for several other medical applications. The advantages of carbon and fibreglass are the strength and durability of the products. They also do not contain any metals, which means they cannot cause allergic reactions. The material is also easy to clean or to sterilise again. The medical world demands traceability from its suppliers in terms of the raw materials and production processes used. This is process that we at Prince Fibre are very familiar with.
