As sustainability targets become ever more stringent, and end-user expectations increase, product manufacturers find themselves trying to solve the ‘sustainability with capability’ challenge – these two often conflict.

Traditional metallic materials are reaching their limit of use and polymer composites, such as carbon composite, have damage tolerance and thermal operating limits.  With this design and procurement teams are finding there are diminishing returns by specifying these materials in their products.

Alvant’s Aluminium Metal Matrix composites provide a shift in design philosophy and a platform to achieve capability and sustainability development goals for the next generation of products.’
