Why we love composite materials

Did you know that advanced composite materials (such as pultruded fibreglass profiles used to fabricate Boavista Windows) can be painted and re-painted as many times as you can? And that paint is a crucial part of the whole product? In Formula 1 cars, it can provide the extra smoothness to the surface, to reduce friction and increase performance, besides being used for aesthetic and sponsor reasons.  

In windows, the coating system contributes to the UV rays resistance. It also provides the coolness of having any colour you desire 😉 

Check out this cool video made by the F1 builder’s champion Mercedes AMG Petronas technical team and learn why we do love composites:
