Ceramic matrix composites (CMC) These structures can be filled with metal of choice to produce a metal matrix composite. In particular, it can be filled with high temperature performing alloys such as refractory alloys or Inconel.
Metal matrix composite (MMC) Depending on the design, structures can be developed where the pore volume is more than 50 percent. In these cases, if the pores are filled with a metallic material through squeeze casting for example, then a MMC structure will be obtained.
Polymer matrix composite (PMC) These materials are formed when the ordered structures are made from metallic or ceramic material and the pores are filled with a polymer.
Enabling the Future is designing prosthetic appendages modeled more like superhero arms and hands than your average static artificial limbs. And theyre doing it through a website and grassroots movement inspired by two mens design and creation in 2012 of a metal prosthetic for a child in South Africa.
