Ceramic carbon composites provide ideal properties where it comes to reliable function and longevity in harsh environments and at high temperatures.

We bring decades of experience with ceramic composites to additive manufacturing in order to provide our customers the opportunity to realize almost any design with ceramic carbon composites. CARBOPRINT Si components are made by siliconizing CARBOPRINT C bodies.

The advantages of CARBOPRINT® Si are:

  • Low weight due to low density
  • High thermal shock resistance
  • High bending strength
  • High wear resistance
