One of the innate properties of C/C composite technology is its porous structure within the carbon matrix. Years of research have produced a technology able to control the number and size of these pores as well as the allowance of metal to be placed within, thus creating C/CMC (Carbon/Carbon Metal Composite). By placing metals such as silicon, aluminum,bronze and titanium, ACROSS has been able to produce certain composites with unique characteristics. Inherent benefits include rigidity, heat resistance and lightness. Creative applications are consequently realized.
