13.Welcome Message to Our Friends:
Welcome to our new forum! We intend to provide you with a place to
discuss and learn about the use of composite materials. We can discuss
materials, processes, various applications, and the cost competitiveness
of these materials in a volume manufacturing.
I personally hope that you find this forum useful and that all will
contribute where they can.
