Video: AutomoTeam Applies For A Patent For A New Type Of Composite Material
The process enables the industrial production of various composite materials and gradient materials based on aluminum with the help of two new series technologies - Metaker Micro Arc Oxidation and porous aluminum casting. The combination and variation possibilities of the materials form the basis for new technical systems in mechanical, chemical, electrical, acoustic, optical, thermal, structural and decorative applications. Three basic components are required to manufacture a Metaker hybrid part: an aluminum component made of hypoeutectic alloy, a dielectric component made of water-resistant material and a water-resistant adhesive for integral hybrids.
The aluminum component
Depending on the target application, several material properties of the aluminum component are modified in the new Metaker Micro Arc Oxidation process. This is done either before connecting to the dielectric component such as plastic or afterwards. By changing the process parameters, both the material properties (function) and the combinations of such (multifunctionality) can be set application-specifically. As a very interesting and little-known aluminum component, porous cast aluminum can also be used in the Metaker hybrid part. This completely homogeneous open-pore material, which is produced in an innovative mold casting process, differs fundamentally from sintered products and foams.
The dielectric component
Any water-resistant, dielectric materials can be used as the dielectric component in the Metaker hybrid part. The properties of the aluminum component are optimally modified for the respective material pairing. If you choose, for example, a glass fiber reinforced plastic, the aluminum component can be specifically modified in terms of corrosion resistance, wear resistance and surface structuring for better adhesion. After connecting to the aluminum component, the hybrid part can be used in the next step to further modify the material properties of the plastic-free areas of the aluminum component.Dispensing with any hazardous substances or chemically aggressive substances when modifying aluminum components guarantees the original functionality of the dielectric component.
