Lightweight materials have revolutionized various industries with their numerous unique properties such as lighter weight with high strength, resistance to corrosion, heat, and temperature, high electrical and thermal conductivities, low density, high ductility and strength, increased fuel economy, reduction in CO2 emissions into the atmosphere, and longer service life, which in turn reduce the cost of maintenance. Some of the lightweight materials include aluminum, high strength steel, carbon fiber reinforced plastic (CFRP), glass fiber reinforced plastic (GFRP), plastics, magnesium, and titanium etc. The properties exhibited by these lightweight materials are not found in conventional materials such as steel, copper, nickel, and iron, and hence, these materials are in huge demand across different industries, namely, automotive, aerospace and defense and wind energy.
