High-performance materials from ceramic fibers
The decisive property of these fibers is their distinctive high temperature resistance. The so-called OXCEFI ceramic fibers developed at the DITF already achieve values that exceed those of the best commercially available fibers.
In this respect, interest in their economical implementation is also growing. Industry is already showing great interest in transferring the manufacturing technology into industrial production. Ceramic composites are used in high-temperature lightweight construction, where, for example, they can replace metallic super-alloys and outperform them in terms of temperature resistance, specific strengths and modules. One field of application is the development of new types of aircraft gas turbines and stationary gas turbines with reduced emission values and higher efficiencies.
