Specialty Materials, a woman-owned small business that is nimble and decisive in the marketplace, has produced advanced fibers and materials for the aerospace, defense, energy, and industrial segments of the advanced materials composites industry for more than 50 years. The results are a successful business with growth in both sales and number of employees, we are the world’s leading supplier of the highest quality boron and silicon carbide fiber products and advanced composite materials.
Our fibers and advanced composite materials provide unique solutions to engineers in a variety of areas, including structural integrity and controlled thermal expansion. All our advanced materials and composites are manufactured to aerospace tolerances by tight process control with complete traceability through meticulous record keeping that traces each product from our starting raw materials to our finished products. In addition to high strength fibers, boron fiber based prepreg and Hy-Bor® prepreg from carbon fiber and boron fiber, we have also developed a high purity boron nanopowder that is primarily use in Magnesium diboride superconductors. Magnesium diboride wire made from our boron nanopowder has resulted in the best magnetic properties for high temperature superconducting wire ever demonstrated.
