As the world becomes more energy efficient, Polymer Matrix Composites (PMCs) are helping push the limits of aerospace technology with lighter, stronger, more durable materials. From structural components to interior materials, PMCs provide lightweight strength and unmatched durability. 

Despite being newer materials, polymer matrix composites have already proven valuable across a wide range of aerospace applications. PMCs possess a high degree of stiffness and strength, without the added weight of traditional materials. Using a combination of mechanical testing, chemical testing, analytical testing and environmental testing, we ensure that your materials continue to perform under any conditions.
