Composite materials have been widely applied to the area of aerospace, sports field and also in automotive industry due to the superior mechanical and chemical properties of the composite materials, as shown in Table 1.1 [ 1] . Outside of the profession, though, many people would be hard pressed to identify or defined a composite itself. Here, definition of composite materials can be referred as a combination of two or more materials with different properties to give a performance in service which is superior to the properties of the individual materials. The individual materials that make up the composites are called as constituent materials. Most of composites materials have two constituent material which are a binder or commonly known as a matrix and a reinforcement. The latter is usually stronger and stiffer than the former that makes better properties for the composites. Meanwhile, the matrix helps to transfer load among the reinforcement due to the structure of the reinforcement material that usually discontinuous. Thus, for example, galvanized steel, which is steel coated with a layer of zinc, combines the corrosion resistance of zinc with the strength of steel. Similarly, concrete beams which have excellent compressive strength are given some strength in tension by reinforcing the concrete with steel bars. Helicopter blades combine structural material for strength and stiffness with erosion resistant material to protect the leading edges from damages
