Thresher Industries Receives Order for Metal Matrix Composite

20 May 2011

Thresher Industries has received a purchase order from an aftermarket automotive company to further develop its ThermaLite metal matrix composite for use as a thermally conductive enclosure.

Tom Flessner, Thresher President said, “We are very excited to enter this market. Success in this automotive application will offer us an opportunity to quickly move from this lower volume work to applications in first tier automotive, where these types of enclosures are used in most new vehicles produced in North America and in Europe.

“Our ability to provide net shape enclosures that can function as heat sinks for these enclosures is adapted from similar technology used in stealth military applications which have been used to minimize thermal footprints. Reducing under hood temperatures around electrical enclosure will extend the life of sensitive electrical components and demonstrate our material capabilities for use in hybrid and electric vehicles” continued Flessner.
