Want to have both 1600 degrees Celsius fire protection and thermal protection, good corrosion resistance and anti-ageing ability? Does it sound challenging? Before the advent of ceramic fibres, it was indeed an incredible thing. The birth of ceramic fibres made more hypotheses possible. Heaterk will tell you all about ceramic fibres.
Fibres with ceramic chemical components are called ceramic fibres. Ceramic fibres are an essential variety of high-performance reinforcing fibres for advanced composite materials.
Ceramic fibre is a fibrous lightweight refractory material with the advantages of a lightweight, high-temperature resistance, good thermal stability, low thermal conductivity, small specific heat and mechanical shock resistance. Transportation ships, electronics and weak industry sectors have been widely used, and the applications in cutting-edge science and technology sectors such as aerospace and atomic energy are also increasing. The development prospects are up-and-coming.
According to the classification of components, ceramic fibre fabric can be divided into oxide series and non-oxide series. The main varieties of oxide series are alumina, zirconia, beryllium oxide, magnesium oxide, titanium oxide and other fibres; the main types of non-oxide series are silicon carbide, boron nitride, titanium diboride fibres, boron fibres and carbon ( graphite) fibre, etc.
Ceramic fibres can be widely used in reinforced metals, toughened ceramics and reinforced resins.
Ceramic fibre started relatively late in China, but it has maintained a sustainable development momentum, production capacity has continued to increase, and product serialisation has been realised. China has developed into a significant producer of ceramic fibre in the world.
