Composites Horizons

The premier testing developer for new polymer systems.

High-Temperature Composites

For over thirty years, Composites Horizons has designed and fabricated composite structures using high temperature polymide and thermoplastic composites.

Composites Horizons (CHI), a division of PCC Structurals, Inc., is the premier testing developer for new polymer systems.

Its work is behind many of the current fabrication processes in use today across the industry. CHI has pioneered various tooling and optimized cure cycles for numerous polyimide systems as well as the fabrication of high-temperature composite structures for both military and commercial aircraft applications.

High-temperature materials include PMR-15, AFR-PE4, MVK-14 for polymer composites (PMC’s). CHI has provided process development and flight hardware using virtually all commercialized high-temperature and aerospace composites.

CHI also develops and produces Ceramic Matrix Composite (CMC) parts for applications where temperatures are in the 1800°F range. They provide ceramic oxide parts to both customer- specific formulations and in a proprietary arrangement with a key supplier of prepreg material for general use.
