What are Advanced Materials?

Unlike traditional materials, advanced materials are engineered at a molecular level to offer exceptional qualities including, but not limited to: superior strength, flexibility, thermal conductivity. shape memory and self-healing abilities. Advanced materials play a vital role in fields like aerospace, electronics and construction. With their remarkable attributes, these advancing materials are enabling the development of more efficient, sustainable products.

Practical Applications of Advanced

The practical applications of advanced materials are numerous. With the ability to increase efficiency across countless sectors, we have provided just a few examples demonstrating the value of innovative materials:

  • Designing enhanced electronics: with the development of semiconductors and superconductors, innovative materials can significantly improve speed and conductivity within small electronic devices.
  • Reinforcing construction materials: from fibre-reinforced concrete to shape-memory alloys, advanced construction materials offer increased durability, reducing maintenance costs.
  • Providing renewable energy solutions: innovative materials play a vital role in collecting and storing renewable energy.  From state-of-the-art wind turbine blades to thermoplastic composite tidal blades, these advancing technologies offer a viable and sustainable energy solution.  

Benefits of Advanced Materials

The benefits of advanced materials are incredibly vast. However, some of the universal benefits of these materials, include:

  • Cost-efficiency: whilst the initial outlay for advanced materials is usually greater than traditional materials, their longevity and performance-enhancing abilities mean they offer a better ROI.
  • Longevity: reinforced materials are specifically designed to withstand the unique challenges presented by their environment – be it on land, in the sea or in outer space – meaning they can endure harsh conditions for longer than traditional materials.
  • Innovation and enhancement: not only are advanced materials used to develop new, innovative solutions, but they can also be used to enhance existing models. . 
  • Environmentally-friendly: many innovative materials are designed to be more eco-friendly than traditional manufacturing methods, whether that’s by using more sustainable materials or reducing emissions/energy consumption.
