Quantities of single strand/ single crystal fibre materials are now being manufactured in the USA by Reade Advanced Materials as single strand fibres and filaments sized 0.001"" to 0.005"" in diameter.
The single strand/ single crystal fibre materials now available include: amorphous boron, boron carbide, amorphous carbon, diamond like carbon (dlc), metal borides, carbides, ceramic, intermetallic, metallic, nitrides, oxides, refractory metals, silicides, silicon carbide, sulfides, tungsten and tungsten carbide.
Popular end use applications include: ceramic & metal matrix composites, plastics reinforcement, aerospace, refractories, high temperature ceramic filters, drilling tools, specialty high temperature textiles, ceramic armour, batteries, fuel cells, reinforcement of turbines, sporting goods and superconductive wires.
Marine piling products come in all shapes and sizes from wood and plastic to steel and concrete, but the Department of Transportation (DOT) agencies tasked with replacing aging fenders are bypassing these options for eco-friendly, corrosion-resistant fibre reinforced polymer (FRP) pilings.
