The CMT Group, which is made up of CMT Plc and its wholly owned trading subsidiary, CMT Ltd, is a leading-edge advanced materials technology group, specialising in the provision of next generation metal matrix composite (MMC) materials solutions. The Group’s current portfolio of products includes both particle-reinforced and continuous fibre-reinforced aluminium-based matrix composites, which are manufactured using CMT’s ground-breaking patented Advanced Liquid Pressure Forming (ALPF) technology.
CMT designs, develops, manufactures, analyses, tests, and supplies aluminium-based metal matrix composites or aluminium matrix composites (AMC), as they are sometimes called, for a multitude of different engineering applications across a wide range of markets, including automotive, motorsport, aerospace, rail, defence, oil and gas, new and renewable energy, medical and consumer products.
AMCs are composed of an aluminium metal matrix and a reinforcement of continuous ceramic fibres or particles. These aluminium-based composite materials offer significant weight and performance benefits over conventional unreinforced materials, such as steel and other common alloys. The key benefits of AMCs are that they offer the strength and stiffness of steel at less than half the weight. CMT is able to offer both high performance continuous fibre-reinforced AMCs, as well as more affordable particle-reinforced AMCs for those more price sensitive applications.
Fibacore is a brand joint owned by CMT and C&J Antich and Sons to market Aluminium Fibacore; a continuous fibre reinforced 3D-UD woven alumina fibre aluminium matrix composite.
