High-end ceramic composites development at Arceon Novel Elements

About Arceon

Arceon was founded in 2018 with the vision to empower revolutionary technology advances by developing materials (Ceramic Matrix Composites – CMCs)  with unique properties such as extreme heat resistance, superior durability and reduced corrosion levels, among others.

Offering a wide range of customized and comprehensive solutions, enhancements and innovations on existing as well as future challenges, the company is currently active on the aerospace, defence, and refractory global markets.

Arceon Novel Elements develops low cost, lightweight and high temperature (>1200°C) stable ceramic composite materials and products. Arceon’s focus is to make a diverse product portfolio with different ceramic composite material variants. Arceon can manufacture components from woven fabrics, prepregs, ultra-high modulus & PAN based continuous and short/chopped fibers with a thickness range of 0.3 to 100mm.

 

Development and manufacturing process of ceramic composites variants

Process steps

1. Shaping

The raw materials i.e., fibers and polymer resin are molded into the desired dimension of the product. The resin is solidified/cured under appropriate combination of pressure and temperature to achieve a stiff component.

2. Baking

This process takes place under an inert environment at 1000°C. The volatiles from the polymer resin leave the component making it a highly porous carbon/carbon product.

3. Infusion

The infusion of silicon takes place under vacuum at >1500°C. The silicon granulates melt and infuse inside the component due to the capillary action of the pores. The silicon reacts with the carbon left by the polymer during baking. Thus, resulting into a carbon ceramic product (carbon/carbon-silicon carbide).
