COMPOSITE C

COMPOSITE C
COMPOSITE C is a carbon fibre reinforced preceramic for applications in the working
temperatures up to 550°C in the open atmosphere and up to 1600°C in vacuum or inert gas.
The advantages of carbon fibre are:
• Lighter than steel, basalt, silicate fibre or alumina-fibre
• Stronger in tensile strength than steel, basalt or silicate fibre
• Excellent temperature resistance in vacuum and inert gas applications

The most important qualities of COMPOSITE C are:

Excellent temperature resistance in vacuum or inert gas
• Excellent torsion, rigidity, mechanical strength and wear resistance
• Good ductility and vibration resistance
• Excellent chemical and corrosion resistance
• Lower thermal conductivity than carbon-carbon composites
• Self-lubricating
• Odourless, non-toxic
• Environmentally friendly

COMPOSITE C is available in sheets (panels) with thickness from 1 mm till 20 mm and dimensions
of one or two sqm. Machined parts and high precision moulded parts are manufactured on
customer requests.
