World Leader in Ceramic Matrix Composites
Axiom Materials is the world’s largest producer of Oxide-Oxide Ceramic Matrix Composite pre-preg materials. Ox-Ox CMCs have significant application momentum as high-temperature oxidation-sensitive components, particularly in the aerospace industry. With a lower density and higher use temperature capability than standard high-temperature superalloys, Ox-Ox CMCs allow jet engines to run more efficiently at higher temperatures, leading to fewer emissions of carbon dioxide and nitrogen oxide, both of which contribute to global warming. In addition, Ox-Ox CMCs resist acoustic fatigue more effectively than standard high-temperature superalloys. Yet, both the industry transition from metals to Ox-Ox CMCs, as well as the engineering of new Ox-Ox CMC hardware, has been gradual as a result of its higher cost relative to conventional materials, lack of application-specific design data, and minimal process development for large-scale component manufacturing.
Axiom Materials is leading the expansion of CMCs into new industrial applications in oil and gas refinery pipes, refractory ovens, and other high-temperature products requiring a combination of high strength and longer lifecycles. Axiom is developing large scale manufacturing technology for low-cost Ox-Ox CMC unidirectional (UD) tape for use in automated tape layup (ATL) component manufacturing. Axiom’s process improvements, technical leadership, and investments are a real breakthrough for the broader use of CMCs.
Ceramic Matrix Composites (CMCs) may be processed via conventional layup and curing techniques while only requiring a free-standing high-temperature sinter cycle to prepare them for high-temperature use.
