Inventing the future of flight

Ceramic Matrix Composites (CMCs) represent one of GE Aviation’s most aggressive technology efforts in its long history. The payoff is nothing short of transformative for the aviation industry and beyond.

How the process works

Ceramic Matrix Composites (CMCs) are as tough as metals, but only one-third as heavy and can operate at 2400 degrees Fahrenheit -- 500 degrees higher than most advanced alloys. This combination allows engineers to design lighter components for engines that don’t need as much cooling air, generate more power and burn less fuel.
