We have competence in High-Tech Ceramics

Innovatec Ceramics has long experience of the whole production process for ceramic materials, which includes idea generation, material selection, design, construction, synthesis, processing, product manufacturing, analysis, testing and evaluation within the following prime areas:

A selection of ceramic projects we have been involved in

Research and development at Innovatec Ceramicshigh-tech ceramics - composites

Innovatec Ceramics AB carries on research in its own premises in Göteborg, in order to maintain edge competence. One project deals with development of ceramic matrices, reinforced with long ceramic fibres. These materials are intended for high-temperature usage in harsh environments.

A method for filament winding combined with slurry infiltration of fibre bundles is under development. The resulting green bodies are carefully dried by different techniques and are subsequently sintered or reaction bonded, depending on the matrix material. Eventually, the manufactured specimens are evaluated by the means of mechanical testing and scanning electron microscope.

A licentiate's dissertation at Chalmers University of Technology is the starting point of this research work.
