Wear Resistant Technical Ceramics
HTI offers C-TUFF™ press-ready engineered blends of alumina and C-TUFF™ silicon carbide microfibers for use in difficult situations where metals and other materials fail. Harsh chemical environments, highly abrasive situations, and high temperature situations are no match for these materials.
C-TUFF™ excels in dynamic operating environments requiring very high temperature stability. In these environments, its fracture and impact resistance far exceeds other ceramic materials commonly used today.
HTI offers a variety of materials products for wear resistant ceramics:
- SI-TUFF™: pure, deaglommerated SiC microfibers for reinforcing ceramic composites
- C-TUFF™ ceramic blends: press-ready powders for producing wear resistant parts
- Custom-order wear parts: send us your part design and we will take care of the rest
For most wear applications, HTI recommends C-TUFF™ CT-8 dry-press ready powder. For applications requiring utmost fracture resistance, such as in ceramic cutting tools, C-TUFF™ HA9S may be considered.
