High temperature resistant, spot heat resistant thanks to internal flexibility,
manufacturing at room temperature, environmentally friendly
Ceramic materials in the form of multi-function ceramics with nano-porous to macro-porous structures as innovative solutions for many industrial sectors and which can also be used for other sectors due to the wide range of variation options for the material properties. Therefore, the nano-composites manufactured can also be used as substrates for weather and fire-resistant or heat-insulating lightweight construction materials.
New applications for nano-composite materials are at the forefront as technical applications for the following sectors:
Construction areas, structural panels
Furniture production and interior fittings
The automotive industry
The bonding agent systems used via a poly-condensation process are purely inorganic in nature and are thus resistant to fire, moisture and chemical attack. Furthermore, they are distinguished by high temperature and oxidisation stability as well as being resistant to temperature change. The raw materials required for the manufacturing of these composites are available without restrictions and at favourable prices. Furthermore, the mechanical characteristics such as resistance and stiffness of the materials manufactured can be adapted with organic or inorganic fibres.
The gross density of these composites can vary between 300 and 1,000 kg/m³, the pressure resistance between 4 and 10 MPa and the corresponding bending strengths between 0.2 and 3.5 MPa. Temperature resistance of > 1,000° Celsius, also point-selective.
Because the physical and chemical resistance of the binding agent can be optimally influenced, the new types of ceramic moulding not only have good fire protection characteristics but can therefore also be employed in a multitude of other industrial applications on a large scale. The effectiveness of the heat conductance of such mouldings can also be influenced by the structured material composition.
