WHY WORK WITH A TO Z?
From a garage in Southern California 30 years ago, to a 10,000 square foot facility with 20+ staff, A to Z has grown into one of the leading precision composite shops in the country. Whether we're building custom jet ski racing hulls entirely by hand, or producing thousands of parts for the military, we're proud of our innovation, efficiency and quality control: Bringing you parts that work- on time and on budget.
We have access to a wide range of graphite and fiberglass fabric styles, both dry and pre-pregged, that offer a wide range of advantages when used in place of metals, ceramics, or polymers. By using a variety of prepreg carbon fiber, fiberglass, kevlar, thermoplastics and a wide range of adhesives, we create products that are superior to steel in weight and tensile strength, have excellent impact resistance, dimensional stability under temperature fluctuations, and do well in harsh chemical environments.
We work closely with PTM&W for most of our thermoset resin systems, which range in cure temp from 68 to 450° F. A to Z has been utilizing ceramic based pre-preg systems for extremely high temperature applications (up to and beyond 2000°F) with great success.
A to Z is also capable of creating prototype parts and one-off molds using a wide variety of materials including high and low-temp tooling boards, foam, wood and plastic faced plaster (PFP) molds.
Our 10,000 square foot facility is optimized to deal with all stages of part production. We can take your idea from sketch to CAD model, prototype through to finite analysis. Our facility is AS9100 compliant and meets all quality requirements associated with the handling and storage of hardware, electrical components and composite materials.
Our lay up and static-free assembly clean rooms, paint booths and curing ovens are maintained to ensure your product is of the highest quality.
A to Z guarantees every component that comes out of our shop. From ensuring fiber alignment when laminating, to trimming, testing and final measuring, we ensure every step is completed in a precise and careful manner that ensures product accuracy.
