A New Dimension of Performance

Carbon Supercomposite by Boston Materials

A Durable, Safe, and Unique Carbon Fiber Composite

Carbon Supercomposite™ is the result of extensive research and development of a material that solves the performance limitations that hinder traditional 2D composites. This new 3D reinforced prepreg features enhanced interlaminar and Z-axis properties that deliver greater performance and functionality at a low switching cost.

Built to Integrate
Our innovative manufacturing approach starts with your choice of traditional carbon fiber fabric. A coating of milled carbon fibers is added to the fabric and vertically assembled. The resulting ply is incorporated with your preferred resin to form a prepreg with both 3D and interlaminar reinforcement. Carbon Supercomposite™ is designed to plug-and-play with virtually all composite component manufacturing methods and can even integrate into existing designs and tooling.

Carbon Supercomposite™ brings new design improvements and performance benefits to your demanding materials applications.

Highly-Differentiated Performance

Durability with Stiffness

The addition of Z-axis milled fibers mechanically pins the layers of a composite together, drastically increasing the interlaminar fracture toughness and strength. This effectively distributes the multi-axial loads throughout material to increase toughness by 300% and strength by 35% without any detriment to stiffness, when compared to a similar carbon fiber material without Z-axis milled fiber reinforcement.
Enhanced Safety

A component made with Carbon Supercomposite™ will noticeably deform before there is a drop-off in strength or fracture. This allows your end user to register a change in apparent stiffness of a composite component prior to catastrophic failure.

Unique Thermal Properties
The design of Carbon Supercomposite™ increases the Z-axis thermal conductivity by 300%. This enables PAN-based carbon fiber composites to match the conductivity of costly pitch-based alternatives.

Unmatched Manufacturing Compatibility

Faster Time to Market

Our Applications Team will quickly integrate Carbon Supercomposite™ into your established designs and production processes to decrease your technical risk and time to production. You can also leverage our R&D Team if you have a unique or sensitive application that requires a specialized solution.
