Alvant’s ParXal material (pronounced Par-Zal) is a stiff highly wear resistant Aluminium Matrix Composite material utilising particles of Silicon Carbide or Alumina (Aluminium Oxide).  This material can be used to produce lightweight stiff components with good machinability and increased strength over the chosen aluminium matrix grade.

Benefits include:

  • High component stiffness
  • Wear resistance
  • Machinable using traditional techniques
  • Extrusion, Forging and Billet forms
