Forged Carbon KX3 Mounts
What is forged carbon? In the manufacturing of the KX3 mounts, we use a compression molding process called Bulk Molding Compound (BMC.) BMC is a process where a mixture of chopped carbon fiber and resin is placed in a mold. Then a combination of pressure and heat create the complex shape of the KX3 mount. After molding, the product is hand polished and sprayed with a UV protective coating. Due to the BMC process and use of chopped carbon, each KX3 mount is as unique as a snowflake.
Forged Carbon is not to be confused with carbon injection molding. We do use injection molding for the plastic piece that interfaces with the computer, however the KX3 Mount is 100% carbon.
