This week, I welcome Anvesh Gurijala and Kedar Murthy of Boston Materials to talk about their company as well as the Supercomp™, a drastically toughened carbon fiber composite that overcomes many of the shortcomings of traditional 2D composites. This new 3D reinforced prepreg features enhanced interlaminar and Z-axis properties that deliver greater performance and functionality at a low switching cost.

This super composite is formed by coating a standard carbon fiber fabric with milled carbon fibers. The milled fibers are vertically oriented by using a proprietary process. These Z-axis milled fibers mechanically pin the layers of a laminated composite together, drastically increasing the interlaminar fracture toughness.
