Why Composites Over Metal


The engineered composite structures enable significant weight savings, high payload and fuel efficiency, and highly portable end-use components.


Composites have anisotropic strength properties, meaning they are stronger in one direction. This means stacking multiple composite layers in different orientations allows the fibers to bear multi-directional forces and loads.


Composites have a nearly infinite fatigue life. When used in highly stressed areas, composite components far outlast similarly designed metallic structures based on fatigue loading.

Corrosion Resistance

The corrosion resistance of composites is advantageous in challenging environments since they do not rust or corrode like traditional metals.


Composite components can be molded to almost any shape, allowing designers to create aerodynamic and aesthetically pleasing shapes with minimal effort.

Aerodine R&D

For over 30 years, Aerodine Composites has worked hand-in-hand with some of the world’s most elite companies developing manufacturing strategies and component designs for harsh environments. From the Indianapolis Motor Speedway to the sea deck of a US Navy Destroyer, products and technologies created as a result of our R&D, are a proud testament to our commitment to pushing the boundaries of our capabilities for our customers. 

Our team of experts develops new and innovative composite technologies that support the highest possible performance at the lowest possible cost while helping to expand the boundaries of what is possible for the motorsport, aerospace, industrial, military, and medical industries. 

Whether it’s creating a new part to ensure a race win or overcoming an engineering obstacle to developing lighter-weight equipment for the military, Aerodine encourages innovation from its partners and provides the resources that enable its customers to maintain industry-leading competitiveness in the marketplace.

While we often work with large engineering teams who prefer to establish their own design, Aerodine is proud to offer a full range of engineering services ranging from industrial design to finite element analysis and laminate optimization. Using our vast experience in design for manufacturing (DFM), we work with our partners to improve their products and keep them most competitive in their markets.
