    reinforce

    Hi everyone,

    I would like to know which of these combinations is correct.

    reinforcing materials or reinforcement materials

    A friend and I were discussing this and it concerns flexible supportive/strengthening materials, for example, used in shoes .
    With this hint what would you consider to be correct?
    I know my choice, what is yours and why.

    Neither are incorrect. Reason: you can use either and still make sense.
