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.
How does x-mat compare?
|X-MAT® OC1||1.8 g/cc|
|X-MAT® CCC||1.3-1.7 g/cc|
|Al203 (Alumina)||3.7 g/cc|
|Density||operating temp.||sPECIFIC STIFFNESS|
|X-MAT® OC1||1.8 g/cc||1100°C||50|

|Al203 (Alumina)||3.7 g/cc||1700°C||92.1|
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.

Final material with X-MAT properties
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. ”- The Economist Technology Quarterly
