Breakthrough of Advanced Ceramic Matrix Composites
What is NITE process?
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
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.
