Aeronautical industries and vehicle industry are the most representative areas where composite materials are used on a large scale. The purpose of this work is to present a new and original sandwich composite material (Type 3) with FABRIC MAT 300 glass fibers (Type 1) as layers and a COREMAT (Type 2) heart. This study about bending behavior of our new sandwich composite material presented in this work is important for our future research. It also has important conclusions of that lends itself best to our future applications to manufacture some car elements, that must have high resistance to impact.
