Materials

Overview

Lightweight

Materials lighter than metal alloys

Ultra-high temperature resistance

Composites which can withstand temperatures above 1000° C

Low co-efficient of thermal expansion

Extremely low CTE ensures stability during temperature differences

High specific strength and stress resistance

Our innovation enhances the mechanical and fatigue strength of the structure

Corrosion resistance

Does not rust like a metal and performs better under influence of chemicals

No detectable outgassing

Environmentally stable. No swelling or detectable outgassing in vacuum allows the use of our composites near optics

Types of Materials

ArCarb

ArCarb combines the properties of carbon fiber and silicon carbide which results in a damage tolerant and high performance C/C-SiC composite. ArCarb can be highly tailored based on project specific requirements by optimising manufacturing and design parameters.

Main Advantages:

  • Ultra-High temperature stable* (long-term non-oxidising environment)
  • Near zero coefficient of thermal expansion
  • No detectable outgassing
  • Enhanced fatigue life and damage tolerant
  • High wear & abrasion resistant
  • Lighter than aluminium
  • Fast manufacturing process
