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 process chain is supposed to adress national and international companies from all sectors, from material production to material application.
We are able to examine, test or process ceramic fibers such as SiC- and Al2O3- as well as carbon-, glass- and basalt fibers for a huge variety of purposes.
Within development projects the anorganic fibers that got chosen for the specific case can be braided, woven or manufactured with other textile processes and the resulting materials can be optimized for the desired characteristics.
> Advice on the selection of fibers
> Fiber testing
> Fiber equipment (sizing, coatings)
> Provision and examination of textile material samples (fabric, braids, knitted fabrics, non-wovens)
In addition, we provide training courses and seminars about textile processing methods.
