Development of new composites and new applications of composites is accelerating due to the requirement of materials with unusual combination of properties that cannot be met by the conventional monolithic materials. Actually, composite materials are capable of covering this requirement in all means because of their heterogeneous nature. Properties of composites arise as a function of its constituent materials, their distribution, and the interaction among them and as a result an unusual combination of material properties can be obtained. From the wide family of composites, fiber reinforced composites have taken much attention due to their better mechanical properties. Composites produced by long fibers with high aspect ratio - are called continuous fiber reinforced composites. A fibrous reinforcement is characterized by its length being much greater than its cross sectional dimension. These composites have found a wide range of application area due to their anisotropic nature, the direction dependence of their properties results in much better design flexibility that cannot be obtained by monolithic materials or particle reinforced composites. Filament winding technique can be accepted as one of the most common production techniques, for the synthesis of polymer matrix composites.
