TMC is a problem solver, especially for aerospace and medical tech and replaces a high number of standard components.
TMC is very suitable in environments where high forces occur and lightweight components with high strength and stiffness are required.
Our process for the production of reinforced components with SiC fibers offers the best possible properties and a wide variety of production.
The high strength of the fiber leads to the fact that the mechanical properties of TMC, such as the bending stiffness, are by far surpassing the properties of components made of conventional materials
Performance data in a pulling test of TMC compared to:
a) high strength steel:
- up to 50% less weight
- up to 75% more strength
- up to 10% more stiffness
- less than 7 times in thermal expansion
- up to 15% less weight
- up to 115% more strength
- up to 80% more stiffness
- less than 3,5 times in thermal expansion
