Specialty Material Inc. (Lowell, MA, US) is showcasing its boron monofilament and prepreg, as well as its SCS silicon carbide monofilament (SiC). Boron monofilament is said to have high compression strength, with typical composite compression strength for boron/epoxy composites in the range of 400 ksi. In addition, it provides high composite tensile strength (220 ksi) and high tensile modulus (28 Msi). Other features of boron fiber are its positive coefficient of thermal expansion (CTE) for space applications, its lack of need for coupling agents in making strong and tough composites, and its absence of galvanic corrosion with aluminum. The company’s SCS SiC fibers are said to increase the strength, stiffness and use temperature of titanium matrix composites and provide toughness to ceramic matrix composites.
