For lightness, stiffness and strength, aluminium matrix composites (AMCs) are an advanced composites material reinforced with fibres or particulates, which provide sustainability and enhanced capability.
Advanced composite materials combine the properties of high strength, high stiffness, low weight, enhanced damage tolerance and corrosion resistance, and in some cases also have special thermal and electrical properties. These composites are classified according to the material being reinforced, with reinforcements typically made with a long fibre, short fibre, or particulates. Hence Metal Matrix Composites (MMCs) are metallic materials reinforced with a secondary high-performance material. Within the category of MMCs, Alvant specialises in Aluminium Matrix Composites (AMCs).
