    The utilization of continuous rectangular shaped reinforcing materials (known here as ribbons) in advanced composites has been studied on a feasibility basis for more than a decade. The main difficulty discerned by these studies was the absence of ribbons possessing mechanical properties similar to contemporary filament reinforcements. Recently in the research and development of metallic glasses, glassy metal ribbons have been manufactured in a continuous manner with aspect ratios (width to thickness) up to 500; these ribbons are available commercially. Depending on the alloy used, some metallic glasses possess high strength, good magnetic properties, and chemical resistance. Accordingly, the objective of this article is to determine some of the advantages and limitations of advanced composites reinforced with glassy metal ribbons.
