High-Performance Automotive:

Quantum Composites carbon fiber and glass fiber materials have been designed into various renowned high-performance automotive platforms. The advantages offered by Quantum’s carbon fiber advanced molding compounds (AMC®) in net shape compression molded parts has enabled vehicle designers to capitalize on the high stiffness, weight reduction and part count reduction benefits derived from AMC-8590 chopped carbon fiber vinyl ester ESC® material.

High-performance platforms utilizing ESC® materials include the Lamborghini Sesto Elemento, Dodge Viper and other global auto applications. Additional platforms with our materials are currently being released or are in development in Asia, Europe & North America.

Higher Volume Automotive:

Polyester and vinyl ester glass reinforced materials such as QC-7753, QC-8770 and QC-8777 have been used in mainstream automotive applications such as heat shields, fuel vapor canister brackets, radiator brackets & sunroof drainage channels. Weight reduction and parts consolidation, as well as reduced tooling cost, continue to drive interest and use of our composite materials in this market.

Rail:

Rail applications include locomotive switchgear applications using glass reinforced vinyl esters and window surrounds using carbon fiber vinyl ester on high-speed bullet trains where the cumulative weight savings per train set is substantial.
