LIGHTWEIGHT METAL MATRIX COMPOSITES (MMCs) OFFER HIGH STRENGTH AND STIFFNESS
Materion’s metal matrix composite materials deliver the mechanical and physical properties that conventional metals don’t. We manufacture a range of MMCs with unique benefits—from weight reduction to high strength and stiffness.
UNIQUE PROPERTIES FOR A RANGE OF APPLICATIONS
We offer a range of metal matrix composite materials to suit your market and application requirements.
- AlBeCast® investment casting alloy composites provide many of the same benefits of AlBeMet but can be more cost effective in certain applications such as avionics electronics.
- AlBeMet® aluminum-beryllium composites combine the high modulus and low density of beryllium with the fabrication and mechanical properties of aluminum. These composites offer significant performance benefits in applications such as aerospace and defense.
- E-Materials made from beryllium-beryllium oxide metal matrix composites offer high strength and modulus and good thermal conductivity. This material solution is used in microelectronics, aerospace and semiconductor applications.
- SupremEX® aluminum-silicon-carbide composites are lightweight and offer a balanced combination of strength and stiffness. These properties make it an ideal replacement for aluminum, titanium, steel and other structural alloys. SupremEX composites can improve performance in commercial and military aerospace, commercial and performance automotive and space and defense optical systems.
