At the heart of modern industry, there are needs for very diverse materials that demand mechanical performance, high strength-to-weight ratios, chemical and corrosion resistance and can operate in both high and extreme temperature environments. Engineers choose Axiom’s lightweight, high-strength composites and adhesives for their performance and long-term operational benefits. With a history of extensive industrial production, from robotic arms to ceramic furnace composites, the quality of Axiom’s materials is matched by its unique capacity to provide cost-effective support to large volume projects.



Furnace & Paper Kilns

From insulation to charging systems, to heating elements, Axiom’s CMC prepregs provide superior high temperature resistance and mechanical strength, along with a chemical/electrical inertness that resists corrosion, oxidation, flames, and leaching. The lightweight, highly variable designs also provide excellent thermal barriers between furnace hardware and exhaust components.



Equipment Enclosures

Axiom’s CMC prepregs provide steep temperature shielding gradients and long-term resistance to chemical attack. They are lightweight, strong, electrically insulating, non-porous, highly resistant to humidity, and can be incorporated with fire-retardant resins.




Rollers made with Axiom’s composites are up to 75% lighter than metals. They deliver high-speed, high stiffness-to-weight performance that decreases machine wear, increases roller efficiency, and extends service life on bushings and bearings.

Robotic Arms

Axiom’s lightweight composite materials support higher load capacities and are more resistant to vibration and deformation than steel or aluminum alternatives. Our materials are customized to meet operational constraints and conditions, and the result is increased production speed and fatigue life with reduced energy cost.



Gantries & Lift Arms

Gantries and lift arms manufactured from Axiom prepregs have higher torsional and bending stiffness, lower weight, and greater corrosion resistance that amplifies service life and saves on transportation costs. Design flexibility and material properties are tailored to meet both precision and heavy load applications.



Extreme Temperature Ceramics

Axiom Materials is the world’s largest industrial producer of Oxide-Oxide Ceramic Matrix Composite prepreg materials. Axiom has invested in fully automated process equipment and test labs to produce an array of CMC material types:

  • Woven Prepregs for large structural parts
  • Unidirectional Slit Tapes for precise placement using AFP and ATL equipment
  • Adhesives for bonding parts together
  • Surfacing Films for smooth, cosmetic finish
  • Bulk and Injection Molding Compounds for complex 3-D shaped parts

Client's Feedback

NIAR Automated Technologies Laboratory for Aerospace Systems (ATLAS) partnered with Axiom Materials to investigate the automated fiber placement (AFP) of AX-7810UD-330N610-0.5", a solvent-based Ox-Ox Ceramic Matrix Composites (CMC) unidirectional slit tape that can be used for high temperature applications up to 1,650 °F, such as engine components. Several variants were slit using a NIAR slitter, capable of continuous in-process inspections to investigate the slit-tape quality in order to ensure that the material will process through the AFP system without any manufacturing defects.   "Working in partnership with the technical team at Axiom Materials, we were quickly able to implement several improvements to the AFP system in order to precisely process slit narrow tape CMC materials efficiently," said Josh Goertz, a senior research engineer at ATLAS who has over 10 years of experience with AFP systems.
