Boston Materials, manufacturer of advanced lightweight materials, started shipping Z-axis carbon fiber products made with its new 60-inch-wide roll-to-roll manufacturing line to customers in the North America and Europe.

“Demand for our Z-axis carbon fiber products is accelerating across several transportation, electronics, industrial, and consumer markets. The launch of our new industrial-scale production line demonstrates our ability to quickly scale to support our growing customer base”

Anvesh Gurijala, Boston Materials CEO.

Boston Materials COO, Michael Segal, adds:

“A commitment to quality is in our company’s DNA; the new 60-inch-wide manufacturing line has state-of-the-art and fully-automated in-line quality tracking for 100 percent traceability and quality assurance.”

The first shipments include the company’s SUPERCOMP® product, a high-performance 3D carbon fiber material that is designed to enhance vibration damping, energy dissipation, and manufacturability of lightweight composite structures.

Boston Materials also announced the limited-release of its new ZRT thermoplastic composite films leveraging high-performance polymers such as PEEK, PEI, PPS, polycarbonate, and more. This new product, also produced with the 60-inch-wide manufacturing line, has been developed to greatly enhance thermal management, EMI shielding, and through-thickness mechanical properties in electric vehicle, consumer electronics, and aerospace applications.

ZRT films are made with 100% reclaimed carbon fiber to support the sustainability and circularity targets of Boston Materials’ customers and the industry at-large.

The company plans to install at least two more 60-inch-wide manufacturing lines over the next three years in its newly-opened 37,000-ft2 manufacturing facility in Billerica, MA.
