Matrix HT

Matrix HT G14 is an HT composite known for its high-temperature resistance and consistent performance across extremes. Atlas Fibre is a leading manufacturer and supplier of this material. Learn about its specs, advantages, and common applications to explore its versatility for your products.

What Is Matrix HT?

Matrix HT combines a proprietary resin system with glass fibers to produce a composite that features the best of each base material. The result is a high-strength, lightweight composite that withstands numerous environmental stressors. It’s uniquely developed for extremely high temperature applications and has been utilized in operating environments of 280° Celsius (536° Fahrenheit).

Essential properties* of Matrix HT G14 include:

  • Rockwell hardness, M scale: 117
  • Flexural strength — LW, ambient temperature, 0.062″: >60,000 pound-force per square inch (psi) [>414 MegaPascals (MPa)]
  • Flexural strength — CW, ambient temperature, 0.062″: >60,000 psi (>414 MPa)
  • Specific gravity: 1.81
  • Water absorption — .125″: <0.60%
  • Izod impact strength — LW: > 17
