Company profile

The Fraunhofer-Center for High Temperature Materials and Design HTL develops materials and components as well as measuring and simulation methods for the use at high temperatures. Important applications are in energy, drive and thermal technology.

At Fraunhofer-Center HTL, ceramic and metal components as well as composites are developed in a closed process chain from component design and material design to pilot plant scale production.Technological focus is the production of lightweight components made of ceramic matrix composites CMC. Furthermore 3D printing processes are available for the production of metal and ceramic components with complex geometries.


High temperature materials and design

The primary area of research is improving quality as well as material and energy efficiency of high temperature processes. In Germany, more than 10 % of primary energy is currently used for industrial high temperature processes. There is significant potential for improvement with regard to saving costs more

Ceramic Matrix Composites (CMC)

At Fraunhofer-Center HTL, components made from ceramic matrix composites (CMC) are developed in a closed process chain from component design and material design to pilot-scale production. CMC materials are distinguished from monolithic ceramics by virtue of their significantly higher fracture toughness, more

thermo-optical measuring systems (TOM)

Fraunhofer-Center HTL develops new thermo-optical measuring methods (TOM) for the qualification of materials for high operating temperatures and the construction of high temperature processes. TOM-systems determine very different material properties in the temperature range from room temperature up to more

Testing technology

Fiber testing: The Fraunhofer HTL ceramic fiber testing service includes determining the sizing content of rovings, determining fineness and fiber diameter, and determination of the mechanical properties of individual fibers and rovings at room temperature in accordance with the procedures described more

Joining technology

With the development of joining technologies at the Fraunhofer-Center HTL individual components of high temperature materials can get a firmly bonded connection to complex components through a cost-effective production. On the one hand the production-ready design of joints is expounded via computer simulation more

Ceramic Fibers

The development of ceramic fibers is one of the key issues of the Fraunhofer-Center HTL. The entire process chain is covered in ceramic fiber production. The fiber development begins on a laboratory scale to highly flexible systems and can be scaled up to pilot plant scale. Afterwards the transfer to more

Textile Preforms

The application center for Textile Fiber Ceramics TFK deals with the textile part of projects and services for developing ceramic fiber composites covering all process steps, starting from the fiber to the equipment of it, up to 3-dimensional fiber preforms which serve as a base for CMC-parts. This continuous more
