Silicon carbide monofilaments are continuous fibres that are about as thick as a human hair and several kilometres in length. They are extremely strong, even at high temperatures... read more
TISICS develops and manufactures fibre reinforced metal composites for high performance aerospace, space and energy system components. The technology allows 40% to 70% mass savings, enabling reduced fuel consumption, increased performance or higher payloads in marine, land, air and space environments. TISICS composite components are robust, inert metal parts. They are outstandingly stiff, strong, tough and surprisingly light. TISICS fibre is extremely strong and can be used to selectively reinforce high stress regions. TISICS can fabricate net shape parts, reducing the risk of machining or welding defects.
Silicon Carbide Fibre
TISICS operates a ceramic fibre production plant, synthesising a unique 100 to 140 micron diameter Silicon Carbide fibre.
Metal Matrix Composites
Composite technicians fabricate the composite layup in clean rooms. We also have a wide range of machines on site, including wire EDM and CNC machines.
