What does „Keramikblech“/„sheet ceramic“ mean?
“Keramikblech” is an oxide / oxide ceramic matrix com­posite. The stand­ard ma­ter­ials were devel­oped by the com­pany Walter E.C. Pritzkow Spezial­keramik. Since 2001 in close co­opera­tion with Fraun­hofer Insti­tut für Silicat­for­schung im­proved oxide / oxide ceramic matrix com­po­sites based on the fiber 3M™ Nextel™ 610 were devel­oped.

All this oxide/oxide ceramic matrix com­po­sites based on fabrics with con­tinuous ceramic fibers in the system Al2O3-SiO2 and matrix mate­rials in the system Al2O3-SiO2-ZrO2.

With these ma­te­rials we want to satisfy our users who are search­ing for mate­rials with the positive charac­teris­tics of metals like damage tol­erance and thermal shock re­sist­ance and the positive charac­teris­tics of ceramic like tem­per­a­ture resist­ance and cor­ro­sion resis­tance.
