BOSTON MATERIALS EMPLOYS PROPRIETARY MATERIAL PROCESSING TECHNIQUES TO PRODUCE 

3D REINFORCED CARBON FIBER PREPREGS

Whether the goal is to make lighter aircrafts, stronger fan blades or more fuel efficient vehicles, Boston Materials is at the frontline of the world’s most critical material challenges, helping to open new opportunities in product design by evolving the state-of-the-art in composite materials

Markets and Applications

Pressure Vessels

Boston Materials’ Carbon Supercomposite™ is an ideal solution for the pressure vessel industry especially manufacturers working with Type 3, Type 4 and Type 5 pressure tanks. Carbon Supercomposite™ can provide unparalleled delamination resistance and out-of-plane performance enabling lighter composite pressure vessels while saving on materials and labor costs. Carbon Supercomposite is available in a variety of formats and Boston Materials’ engineers can tailor Carbon Supercomposite™ to meet specific needs.

Marine

Carbon Supercomposite™ offers a unique solution to the challenges facing the marine industry. Carbon Supercomposite’s™ improvements in resistance to delamination make it an ideal material choice for applications coming under irregular and out-of-plane forces such as battens, hydrofoils, fins and rudders. Carbon Supercomposite’s™ enhanced resistance to impact provides an added layer of protection to critical components all while saving weight and material costs.

Wind Energy

As the wind industry pushes towards larger wind turbine blades, Carbon Supercomposite™ offers the breakthrough material technology to make it happen. Carbon Supercomposite™ can provide both a stiffer and more durable carbon fiber blade while reducing weight and saving material costs. Carbon Supercomposite™ is also thousands of times more conductive in the through-plane direction vastly improving resistance to lighting strikes.

Aerospace

Carbon Supercomposite™ can be easily tailored for aerospace applications and offers significant improvements in weight reduction, tolerance to lighting strikes, and overall durability. The three-dimensional fiber reinforcement in Boston Materials’ Carbon Supercomposite™ inherently makes a more isotropic and delamination resistance prepreg. This allows for Carbon Supercomposite™ to be used in applications previously unsuitable for anisotropic composite materials. Carbon Supercomposite™ is also compatible with automated tape laying (ATL) layup methods and can be seamlessly integrated into existing manufacturing lines.

Automotive, Tooling, Sports Equipment and General Purpose

Boston Materials can tailor Carbon Supercomposite™ for an almost endless list of specialty applications. Carbon Supercomposite™ can be easily adapted to virtually any weave and resin system and can be produced in a variety of formats. Generally, any application where a traditional prepreg is used, Boston Materials can supply a compatible Carbon Supercomposite™ formulation that will greatly exceed traditional prepregs in resistance to delamination, impact, durability, and through plane conductivity.
