Durafox™ Ceramics

Extreme loads from corrosive or oxidative environments are a major challenge for auxiliary agents and system parts. Components made of oxide fiber composites (OFC) have enormous potential for just such applications thanks to their outstanding material-specific properties. They have a high damage tolerance and resistance to changes in temperature, and can be used for temperatures up to 1,100 °C.

Fields of application:

  • Exhaust gas routing / Hot gas ducting components (pipes and flaps, heat exchanger, hot gas filter)
  • Fixture systems in furnace construction
  • Diffusion barrier to prevent carbon diffusion
  • Thermal protection
  • Processing of aluminum (crucibles, dosing launders, dosing systems)
  • Stationary turbines and aircraft gas turbine (combustion chambers, stationary guide vanes)
  • Lightweight construction for engine components (cylinder head, engine block, valves, exhaust manifold)
  • Special applications (porous burners, solar receivers)

You benefit from these advantages:

  • Significantly longer service life through resistance to oxidation and corrosion
  • Low thermal conductivity
  • High damage tolerance (due to high strain to failure ratio)
  • Good thermo-mechanical properties
  • Highly resistant to heat and thermal shockElectrical insulator
  • No wear under thermo-cyclical stress (improvement in quality)
  • Electrical insulator
  • Lightweight construction (thin wall thicknesses can be realized)
  • Metal-like, sheet-like constructions possible
