Carbon composites

We have more than 20 years of experience in manufacturing carbon composite materials which are valued for their controlled friction properties. We are also actively involved in customer-sponsored research and development programmes in this field.

The most common application for our carbon composites is within the aerospace industry where carbon fibre friction discs are used in flap jam systems. In addition, the friction properties and excellent high compression strengths of these materials make them ideal for use in other specialised applications.

Our two most popular products are described below. We are also able to supply a range of other carbon-carbon materials. Please contact us to discuss your specific requirements and we will be delighted to assist.
