Metal Matrix Composites (where to buy?)

  1. Jan 7, 2008 #1
    Hello! I am a grad student and am trying to acquire some Aluminum Metal Matrix composites with Boron Carbide reinforcement (15-20%) for research. I need the material to be in 1/4" thick sheets. Does anyone know of any companies that sell this sort of material?

    Thanks!

    I would like to know why you select B4C/Al metal matrix composites as your research target?

    Dear all:

    For the chemical-physical properties of these composites I should first check various online sources.

    Good luck,
