Advanced Ceramics - Ceramics and Composites
Through advanced powder processing consolidation of ceramics, chemical vapor infiltration (Isothermal CVI and Reverse Thermal Gradient CVI), and polymer infiltration and pyrolysis (PIP) of ceramic and ceramic/metal composites, TA&T is pushing the boundaries of ceramic material capabilities.
Powder processing capabilities include powder property characterization, rapid mixing, spray drying, cold pressing of green bodies, tape/slip casting, photopolymer-based fabrication, sol gel based methods, cold isostatic pressing, pressureless sintering, hot pressing and hot isostatic pressing.
Ceramic and ceramic/metal matrix composites (including particle, whisker and fiber reinforced composites) are targeted predominantly for structural applications.
