Cellular Materials International Inc. (CMI) is a pioneer of high-performance Periodic Cellular Materials, also known as PCMs. These structures can be engineered to exhibit both low density and high strength. Inspired by lightweight cellular structures found in nature, PCMs are able to address the often conflicting requirements of reducing weight in mission-critical applications while maintaining superior structural performance. These materials are lighter than traditional metal forms such as monolithic sheets and open cell topologies, and are often more functional than customary cellular materials such as honeycombs and metal foams.
