Material Development & Custom Formulations-Image

Quantum Composites R&D and pilot sample production capabilities have and continue to be at the fore front of our materials development activities. Our R&D capabilities range from development work on formulation modifications to meet a given set of application and performance requirements to research work on totally new development projects, partnerships and ground zero raw materials & technology evaluation.

Our development and formulating capabilities & experience include:

  • Carbon fiber materials development - QCI continues to be the industry leader and pioneer in carbon fiber compression molding compounds.
  • Glass fiber materials
  • Hybrid glass and carbon materials
  • Different glass fiber lengths - typically 1" but available from ¼" thru 2"
  • Hybrid resin systems
  • Colors for molded in part appearance
  • Low density materials
  • Conductive additives and enhancements
  • Flame retardant additives
  • FST - flame smoke and toxicity properties to meet aerospace cabin
    interior and other transportation requirements.
  • Unidirectional and woven continuous fibers using QCI resin systems for co molding with chopped fiber QCI materials.
  • Co molding QCI random chopped materials with prepregs
  • Phenolic ESCTM molding compounds
