By orienting short fibers in the Z-axis, Boston Materials has been able to achieve an exceptional jump in impact resistance and the ability of the carbon fiber composite to resist out-of-plane forces. This creates a stronger more durable carbon fiber composite.
Boston Materials’ Carbon Supercomposite™ significantly improves delamination resistance in carbon fiber composite parts by reinforcing the interlaminar region between the plies of material.
Boston Materials has achieved a dramatic improvement in through-plane conductivity with the use of aligned fibers through the thickness of the carbon fiber composite. This results in a composite that can better withstand electrical discharges from lighting and other sources without the need of copper shielding or other workarounds.
