What is NITE process?

SiC/SiC composites

  • SiC/SiC composite material reinforced with SiC fiber is a material that overcomes the major disadvantage of ceramic materials,: Embrittlement. And further, by taking advantage of the basic characteristics of SiC, high temperature characteristics, corrosion resistance, and excellent environmental resistance in high-energy particle (neutron, etc.) irradiation environments.

NITE process
for SiC/SiC

NITE (Nano-Infiltration Transient Eutectic Phase) Process:
The solution to the severe requirements for industrial applications

  • High Density and Excellent Hermeticity
  • High Thermal Conductivity
  • Chemical Stability
  • Flexibility in size and varieties of shape

Improvement from the original NITE process with wet slurry to New (Current) NITE Process with dry intermediate materials (green-sheets, prepreg-sheets and pre-composite ribbons) makes excellences in productivity, quality control and economic competitiveness.
