In cryogenics, materials are used, stored, produced, and transported at extremely cold temperatures — below minus 160 degrees Celsius. Cryogenics freezes materials to a temperature that turns gas into liquid. The temperature required varies based on the type of gas because some gases need much colder temperatures than others to convert from gas to liquid form.
The production of cryogenic equipment requires compatible materials that can withstand temperature extremes. Atlas Fibre has thermoset composite laminate shapes and parts that are suitable for use in frigid temperatures. We work with our cryogenic customers to help them choose materials that minimize complexity and contain costs.
Thermoset composite materials are ideal for use in demanding environments due to their physical and chemical properties.
Low thermal creep materials and cryogenic plastics offer multiple benefits to the industry, including:
Atlas Fibre is the leading supplier of thermoset composite and cryogenic compatible material in the country. We have the largest selection of in-stock materials available in the USA, including a 120,000-square-foot warehouse with more than $8 million worth of inventory. Our partner facilities in Massachusetts and Hyderabad, India, have an additional $4,000,000 in raw materials.
We fabricate parts to your custom specifications with machine-ready precision blanks. Since we’re also a resource center, we can help you choose the most cryogenic-compatible materials. Turn to our team with any questions about composite materials and their benefits and use in cryogenics.
The right thermoset composite materials reduce your project’s complexity and protect your equipment. Contact us for a quote today to learn more about cryogenic grade composites and the benefits of using the materials.Request A Quote Today
