Public Profile

Advanced Composite Materials (ACM) is a specialty materials company specializing in high aspect ratio silicon carbide technology. Thee firm's materials are used to reinforce and toughen ceramics, metals, and polymers. Product lines include: SI-TUFF™ Performance Silicon Carbide: fiber and microfiber additives for protective coatings to increase scratch and abrasion resistance, and extend service life. SI-TUFF™ forms a strong, interlocking network which distributes forces into multiple, smaller force components throughout the coating, resulting in reduced damage. Effective at low loading levels so it does not impact other critical coating properties like flexibility, non-stick, or friction. SI-TUFF™ 7-Series Silicon Carbide Fiber: the world's first cost-effective high temperature ceramic fiber designed for CMCs and MMCs. Priced an order of magnitude below other SiC fibers in the marketplace, SI-TUFF™ 7-Series enables the development and commercialization of a new class of high performance, low-cost CMCs and MMCs. Silar® Silicon Carbide Whiskers: ultra high purity single-crystal "whiskers" of ?-SiC. Used in high performance ceramic cutting tools, wear parts, and industrial tooling and equipment with extreme toughness and abrasion resistance. Composites reinforced with Silar® exhibit excellent thermal dissipation and thermal shock resistance. CERAMTUFF™ Press-Ready Blends: engineered blends of high-purity, fine grain aluminum oxide and Silar® SiC whiskers. Parts made from CERAMTUFF™ are characterized by exceptional hardness, compressive strength, fracture toughness, wear resistance, thermal shock resistance, and dimensional stability. They endure the most extreme environments where failure is simply not an option. Advanced Composite Materials, LLC had its beginnings in 1976. The firm has a complex and long history having been originally created as a joint venture of Exxon Enterprises and Hulco, Inc. of Salt Lake City, Utah. dba Silag, Inc. licensing from the universities. After moving South Carolina, the company became a wholly owned subsidiary of Exxon Enterprises’ Materials Division being subsequently acquired Atlantic Richfield Company. In 1984 the company became part of ARCO Chemical Company. ARCO which divested many of its non-oil assets and in December 1986, the company became incorporated as Advanced Composite Materials Corporation (ACMC). only to be acquired the following year by Tateho Chemical Industries Company, Ltd. In 2006, TCI decided to divest and through a management buyout the company became a standalone, privately-held entity changing its name in 2006 to Advanced Composite Materials, LLC (ACM, LLC).
