Next-Generation Material, MMC

When you consider using material that has high thermal conductivity, there would be many choices such as copper, molybdenum, tungsten, aluminum nitride, SiC, and so on. Adding to them, we would recommend another option, MMC, whose thermal conductivity is 120~190 W/m・K (representative value, and depends on the composition and the ratio.)

MMC (Metal Matrix Composites) is a composite material that realized better properties by combining base metal and ceramics reinforcement material.

Other than high thermal-conductivity, MMC is superior in rigidity, lightweight, and low thermal expansion as well. By using MMC, customers can increase the rigidity without changing shape and weight, or reduce the weight while maintaining the rigidity. If you are interested in MMC and would like to know further detail, please refer to the following pages on our website.

Anytime you find yourself in need of ceramics or refractory metals, please feel free to contact us. We are also welcoming inquiries regarding the developments of new products and material selections.
