JEC Group have brought together the international community of composites leaders and executives in our Composites Circle as an unique networking opportunity to meet with both peers and future partners.
JEC Europe 2012 - The new KOMPOSIT technology offers materials for high-temperature applications and rough industrial environments. These products are an evolution of fibre-reinforced plastics and ceramics.
The range includes high-performance plastics with a temperature resistance up to 550°C and preceramic composites with a temperature resistance up to 1000°C.
The synthetic and mineral character of the matrix used for these composites protects fibres during high-temperature treatments. Their electrical and thermal conductivity can be adjusted by modifying the matrix according to customer needs. Mechanical, thermal and electrical properties can be modified using the following reinforcements: Al2O3 fibre, basalt fibre, carbon fibre, SiO2 fibre or a combination of reinforcements.
In addition to being excellent thermal and electrical insulators, these products are anti-adhesive and have very good mechanical strength and ductility. Preceramic composites show strong mechanical performance in high-temperature applications.
The advantages of these composites include temperature resistance, thermal & electrical insulation, high torsional and mechanical strength and non-flammability. They are odourless, non-toxic and eco-friendly. This unique technology saves energy and resources.
