Advanced materials

Advanced materials are new or modified materials that have been engineered to provide superior performance across multiple characteristics such as strength, weight and formability.

This can proactively be integrated in the early design phase to offer multiple novel attributes, such as biocompatibility, biodegradability, energy efficiency and self-repairing.
