First and foremost, composites are engineered materials that have been designed to provide significantly higher specific stiffness and specific strength (stiffness or strength divided by material density)—that is, higher structural efficiency—relative to previously available structural materials.

In addition, existing aerospace structural alloys, such as those based on aluminum, were subject to corrosion and fatigue damage, and OMCs provided an approach to overcome these issues. By the end of the war, glass-fiberreinforced plastics had been used successfully in filament-wound rocket motors and demonstrated in various other prototype structural aircraft applications. These materials were put into broader use in the 1950s and provided important improvements in structural response and corrosion resistance.

S. tactical fighter aircraft, the F-22. Over 24% of the F-22 structure is OMCs. The B-2 bomber, shown in Fig. 2, is constructed using an even higher percentage of composites, as are current helicopter and vertical lift designs. For example, the tilt- rotor V-22 Osprey is over 41% composite materials. The upper-use temperature of PMCs has also increased dramatically: early epoxies were considered useable (for extended periods) up to 121 °C (250 °F). Current generation polymers, such as bismaleimides, have increased that limit to around 204 °C (400 °F), and the use of polyimide-matrix composites has extended the range to 288 °C (550 °F).
