COMPOSITES IN OIL AND GAS INDUSTRY Composite materials are multiphase materials that obtained through the artificial combination of different materials in order to attain properties that the individual components by themselves cannot attain. They are not multiphase materials in which the different phases are formed naturally by reactions, phase transformations, or other phenomena. An example is carbon fiber reinforced polymer. Composite materials should be distinguished from alloys, which can comprise two more components but are formed naturally through processes such as casting. Composite materials can be tailored for various properties by appropriately choosing their components, the proportions, distributions, morphologies, degrees of crystallinity, crystallographic textures, as well as the structure and composition of the interface between components. Due to this strong tailor ability, it could be designed to satisfy for the application of technologies relating to the aerospace, automobile, electronics, construction, energy, biomedical and other industries. Thus, composite materials are being the most commercial engineering materials. The structure of a composite is commonly such that one of the components is the matrix while the other components are fillers bound by the matrix, which is often called the binder. An example of a composite material is a lightweight structural composite that is obtained by embedding continuous carbon fibers in one or more orientations in a
