Press Release of  BJS Ceramics GmbH

Gersthofen/Bayreuth July 26, 2017

Non-oxydic ceramic fibers, so-called silicon carbide (SiC) fibers are used in SiC-fiber-reinforced composite materials. Fiber-reinforced composite materials uniquely combine important characteristics such as high-temperature resistance, high mechanical strength, high resistance against aggressive media like acids or salts – while being light-weight. Many industries rely on this highperformance material, e.g. the aviation industry. This composite material enables more efficient turbines for airplanes that will meet the future regulatory limits for emissions. Read more
