Metal Matrix Composites

Alvant has a proven process for creating four lightweight high-performance aluminium matrix composites

ALXAL METAL COMPOSITE

STRENGTH

PARXAL Metal Matrix Composite

WEAR RESISTANCE

AERXAL Metal Matrix Composite

ULTRA-LIGHTWEIGHT

CORXAL Metal Matrix Composite

STIFFNESS

STRENGTH OF STEEL – LESS THAN HALF THE WEIGHT

“Aluminium matrix composites (AMCs) are aluminium combined with a high-performance secondary material providing the world’s most demanding products with enhanced capability and sustainable performance “

LIGHTWEIGHT

Upto 80% lighter than steel

STRENGTH & STIFFNESS

Can be 50% stiffer and close to 300% as strong as carbon composite

THERMAL STABILTY

95% of strength can be retained at 250°C

FATIGUE & DAMAGE TOLERANT

x3 the fatigue strength of an aerospace aluminium

Advanced Liquid Pressure Forming – a unique, patented manufacturing process 

Our process is a metal infiltration technique used to produce a variety of high-quality aluminium matrix composite materials.

Components can be fully manufactured from AMC or can have AMC material selectively applied in a process known as hybrid-AMC. This can provide optimised performance for a more cost-effective solution.
