To create an advanced matrix technology, ARC
products use specialized polymers developed for the
structural composite industry that are incorporated
into ARC materials via a proprietary manufacturing
process. ARC is the largest US consumer of selected
specific high-performance polymers for non-military
We’ve combined the extremely durable properties
of ceramic reinforcements with the resilience of this
advanced matrix technology to deliver powerful
resistance to the costly and damaging problems
of abrasion, erosion-corrosion, chemical attack,
and atmospheric corrosion. ARC composites have
been proven to outlast traditional materials like
hard-face welding, rubber linings, and ceramic tiles.
