Advanced Composites Group has developed MTM59, a carbon fibre composite material that is set to benefit the medical sector.

MTM59, a 120°C curing matrix system, has been combined with a recent development from ACG to provide a high performance composite system with the enhanced clarity that is required for X-ray tables and plates. Composite materials offer high strength, stiffness and low weight, but in the medical world it is their transparency to X-rays that makes these materials so attractive.

Surface clarity can, through innovative resin chemistry, translate into through thickness clarity and high definition X-ray images. Presently under trial with a number of European manufacturers, ACG hopes that MTM59 will set the standards for the construction of future medical imaging equipment.

Jon Mabbitt, Managing Director of ACG said: “We are constantly exploring new avenues for our innovative new products to service the growing needs of our customers. Until now there has never been a product like MTM59, and we believe it will prove vital to medical equipment manufacturers the world over.
