The process of making Flexiramics® products consists of 4 main steps:
We start with a wet chemical solution. This step is crucial as it defines most of the properties of the final material.
We shape the wet chemical solution into fibers or particles which are not yet ceramic.
We apply a high temperature treatment to the green fibers or particles. During this treatment we turn the fibers or particles into a ceramic material.
Flexiramics® products are treated with other materials to modify specific properties.
what it is
Flexiramics: a versatile ceramic based technology which allows for the design and production of ceramic products, where the following can be customized:
- Type of ceramic composition
- Fiber diameter
- Particle geometry
- Fiber degree of alignment
- Fiber packing density
- Fiber length
- Grain size
