Quantum Composites (Bay City, Mich., USA), a business unit of The Composites Group, has introduced its first hybrid carbon fiber/glass fiber material, reportedly a cost-effective, lightweight and high-strength alternative for traditional fiberglass and metal applications in the automotive, heavy truck, medical, sporting goods and industrial markets. The hybrid material, AMC-8590-12CFH, is a Quantum Advanced Molding Compound (AMC) that is said to offer the performance benefits of carbon fiber at a cost similar to high-performance fiberglass. It is suitable for fast-cure compression molding to form complex parts in high-volume production. AMC-8590-12CFH is part of Quantum’s AMC-8500 Engineered Structural Composite (ESC) series. Quantum’s ESC materials are available in a range of product offerings, including carbon or glass reinforcement in epoxy, vinyl ester and polyester, phenolic, BMI and polyimide resin matrices.
