Composites are a combination of two or more materials combined as one. They are substitutes for natural materials. They conserve resources by providing advanced properties that are not available in a natural material.
These synthetic materials combine a natural look with advanced features like lightness, waterproofing and durability. The materials are made in a wide choice of substrates and can be coated, woven, impregnated, bonded and extruded.
They are formed as a thin layer which is bonded to a heavy duty, thick, recycled board to form a sturdy hardback folder.
Natural sources do not have their special characteristics.
