This hybrid carbon fibre material, which Quantum says, is a cost-effective, lightweight and high-strength alternative for traditional fibreglass and metal applications in the automotive, heavy truck, medical, sporting goods and industrial markets.

“Quantum Composites’ revolutionary hybrid carbon fibre has the power to open doors that were previously closed. This new material, with its improved flexural and tensile moduli at a significant cost reduction, has created the opportunity for new thermoset applications,” said Wisdom Dzotsi, General Manager, Quantum Composites.

Quantum state that the hybrid carbon fibre material called AMC-8590-12CFH, is an Advanced Moulding Compound that offers the performance benefits of carbon fibre at a cost similar to high-performance fibreglass. It is easily mouldable, delivering parts that are high strength, low density, and resistant to fatigue. To round out its value-added attributes, this innovative, hybrid compound can be customised to achieve specific application requirements and is suitable for fast cure compression moulding to form complex parts in high-volume production.

AMC-8590-12CFH is part of Quantum’s AMC-8500 Engineered Structural Composite(ESC) series.
