More dynamic, safer products for a competitive edge

CMT’s aluminium matrix composites have revolutionised the world of engineering. With weight, stiffness and strength often being the number one design target, the exceptional properties of AMCs have allowed engineers to realise previously unachievable designs.



Aluminium matrix composites can be used to dramatically improve performance within sports equipment. With success already being seen in golf, cycling and winter sports. The high stiffness and strength to weight ratio has enabled products to be radically redesigned, creating a literal game-changer within the industry.



Creating a prosthetic limb requires materials that are going to maximise the user experience. The exceptional stiffness and strength to weight ratio, both longitudinal and transverse to the fibre direction, allows for a design that will excel in the unpredictability of everyday life.

High-Speed Machinery


When designing high-speed machinery, high stiffness and strength combined with low inertia enable a faster repeat time. Metal matrix composites allow for this increase while not being subjected to the restrictions of polymer matrix composites – With a metal rather than polymer matrix, the material can be used in more harsh environments like food production and elevated temperatures.

CMT, which is made up of CMT Plc and its subsidiary CMT Ltd, is an advanced materials technology group.
