Power electronics are increasingly being used as a key technology in many industries. The trend is moving steadily towards miniaturization, where components have to fulfill ever-higher requirements regarding power density, reliability and material integration.

We have developed future-oriented composites made of aluminum graphite (ALG) for these applications. The composites are created through the pressurized infiltration of porous graphite with liquid aluminum. These metal matrix composites (MMCs) impress with their high thermal conductivity, suitable heat-expansion coefficients and very low densities. Thanks to outstanding mechanical workability, components can simply be produced from it according to customer specifications.
