Morgan Advanced Materials

We have a strategy based on building deep expertise in materials, markets and customer needs, and that translates into leading, differentiated positions across our markets

Working across many industries, you will find our products all around you. Our quality and advanced materials science are essential to delivering the technologies the world needs, now.

Morgan Advanced Materials is a design partner for our customers, translating their needs into product solutions, distinguishing ourselves through the application engineering that we provide. We support our customers through investments in application testing and use this to inform our technology and product development and to develop bespoke solutions for our customers. We invest in manufacturing capacity to support customer demand in our core and in four faster growing segments; semiconductors, healthcare, clean energy and clean transportation. We are committed to operating sustainably and helping our customers to improve the sustainability of their products and processes.


We engineer components which are highly resistant to chemical & physical wear, corrosion, and extreme temperatures, sitting at the heart of many industrial processes.

In the industrial market we have; engineered thermal ceramics fibre Superwool® XTRA - an alternative to refractory ceramic fibre. We have produced reduced wear, reliable seals which extend pump life by up to 4x, (compared to spray coated stainless steel rings), resulting in the significant reduction of through life costs, and our Pyro-Bloc® modules for Regenerative Thermal Oxidisers reduce the number of through-joints between modules, resulting in fewer opportunities for heat loss, and reduced fuel related expenses.

Clean Energy

Our new ceramic materials for customers producing solar panels support the latest generation of production technology. In addition we are developing brushes that provide longer lifetimes and higher current carrying capability to support the next generation of wind turbines.

We support the EV market with alumina seals & bearings for cooling pumps which are produced to fine dimensional tolerance, improving efficiency & minimising pump noise. Our thermal insulation Superwool® is used in heat recovery steam generators, fuel cells, and energy storage walls to improve energy efficiency.


Clean Transportation

Our streamlined production processes for carbon strips allow us to develop and test new materials formulations quickly to meet the diverse needs of customers in the rail and metro markets.

We have a leading range of products and solutions that provide fire protection around battery packs in electric vehicles and we are constantly innovating these to meet the myriad requirements of our customers.

We work with our rail customers to overcome technical challenges and optimise system performance with our carbon brushes & holders, earthing brushes and third rail shoes. We produce a wide range of products which are used to transfer electrical current between stationary and rotating or linear moving parts in motor, generator, and current collector applications.

Our seals and bearings are used in vehicle fuel and thermal management, providing near frictionless running and low wear rates, whilst our fused silica and mullite rollers thermally anneal automotive chassis parts. We enable more efficient jet engines, through the production of more and more complex cores for casting turbine blades allowing engines to run hotter and more efficiently.


We improve the quality of life by providing innovative solutions to the healthcare industry. We provide ceramic and brazing products for diagnostic and life support equipment, and for implantable devices. Our materials are used in power tubes for medical scanning and with new materials design we can increase the lifetime of products.

We have developed new capabilities for the implantable feedthroughs market (e.g., for cochlear implants and neurostimulation) that allow us to provide higher pin densities and therefore enabling smaller package sizes for our customers' next generation products.

Our ablation tips for cancer treatment enable minimally invasive procedures, resulting in reduced  patient trauma and recovery time, and our biocompatible technical ceramics are utilised in apheresis systems, micro-dosing systems and oxygen compression.

Our products transform peoples’ lives.


Our materials are used throughout the semiconductor manufacturing process, in etch, ion implantation, photolithography, and deposition steps. As chip density increases, the manufacturing processes get more demanding and put increasing demands on the components used in the process.

We are working with our customers on carbon and ceramic materials and product configurations to support the latest generation of equipment.
