The X-MAT Advantage

Don’t be limited by an existing material specification sheet.

X-MAT offers a fully customizable material system to meet your necessary operating requirements. Whatever your needs, X-MAT technology can be custom-engineered to fit your exact specification.

The material advantages are boundless. Utilizing polymer resin instead of ceramic powders, X-MAT stands out in terms of strength, durability and cost.

With a demonstrated 1” thickness scale and feet thickness attainable, X-MAT is cheaper to produce than ceramics, with unlimited potential market applications.

the process

The ease of manufacturing with X-MAT® provides for both faster and simpler manufacturing processes than currently used industrial ceramic processes. X-MAT® uses typical plastic processes such as molding, machining and 3D printing.

Greener production

X-MAT® uses 20X less energy to produce ceramics than currently used industrial processes. The materials are combined using chemical bonding, rather than sintering, using significantly lower energy to create a more stable product. The X-MAT® coal core composite uses coal in an ‘unburned’ state which greatly reduces the production of greenhouse gases.

  • “Big companies, too, will increasingly compete by using exclusive recipes for new materials and customised production techniques. If you just do a great design and use a manufacturing process which everyone else can use, you will run out of steam,

    says Mr. Idelchik at GE Research.
  • But if you have a proprietary manufacturing process which applies to proprietary materials, you are creating a long-lasting competitive differentiation. ”
