Explore the Possibilities


Explore the possibilities of combining metal carbides with carbon. It starts with carbon fiber – strong and light. And, in a one-step patented process, a nano-conversion layer of any metal carbide forms into each individual filament. The metal carbide conversion layer grows in seconds into each filament uniformly using natural laws of attraction. The new metal carbide/carbon core fibers are called “Fi-Bar™” and are part of a revolutionary platform of ceramic and metal matrix composite materials with capabilities beyond anything currently available. Click on the elements and explore the 34 metal carbide / carbon fiber possibilities. . .

Various Applications

 

Space


ACF’s high-performance fibers is opening up new possibilities in space. In 2020 ACF began collaborating with The John Hopkins University / Applied Physics Lab to research material for a NASA Interstellar Space Probe as well as working with NASA on nuclear thermal propulsion for accelerated interspace travel. With a metal carbide / carbon fiber material that can not only withstand ultra-high temperatures, but is also extremely strong and light, ACF is uniquely poised to solve space-related challenges.

Defense


In the defense field alone, the opportunities for using Fi-Bar™ are countless. Turbine engines, hypersonic materials, re-entry vehicles, missile components, and advanced armor systems are just a few ways ACF’s creation of high-performance fibers will be game-changing for your company. Notably, ACF is working with the NAVY to develop Alpha Silicon Carbide / Carbon Fiber reinforced CMC materials for 1482ºC (2700ºF) turbine engines. ACF also has been contracted by the NAVY to create 3D Braided CMC Fasteners. Many more opportunities exist in the defense industry, and with capital infusion, they will be more aggressively pursued.
