The Application of New Materials in the Design
We named the Prehistoric and primitive times by materials--- the Stone Age, Bronze Age and Iron Age are just the vivid description of the importance of the material. Some experts called the present “Synthetic material times”, the future “Allergenic material times”. In product design, new materials, as an important element of component performance, plays an important role in improving the product's features and enriching the product’s content. In this paper, I will make a reasonable description on the performance of new materials and functional requirements of products, providing designers with a selection of ideas.
