Ceramic Matrix Composites


cmc characteristics


Cerablak® CMCs represent a new advancement in the field of ceramic matrix composites and hold great promise in addressing 21st century challenges in thermal management. These composites are bulk materials made from commercially available fiber reinforcements (Nextel™-grade fibers from 3M™) and our proprietary matrix material. Ceramic composites are an emerging class of materials that combine the thermal and oxidative stability of ceramics with the toughness and damage tolerance of metals. Cerablak® is an excellent matrix material for composites due to its simple and low-cost solution processing, as well as unparalleled thermal stability and compatibility with most ceramic fiber materials.
