Metal Matrix Composite

MMCs is an attractive class of engineering material which get more and more attention from the industrial recently. MMCs has superior advantages over conventional metallic alloys which include:

  • High specific strength and stiffness
  • Light Weight
  • Enhanced fatigue resistance
  • Increased elevated temperature strength
  • Excellent wear resistance
  • Tailorable coefficient of thermal expansion

The centre has successfully developed the methodology of fabricating MMCs casting components by our differential pressure casting system which fully compliant with ASM’s standard.
