Harper's best and brightest engineers have authored an article for the March issue of Ceramic Industry focused on a new concept for continuous synthesis of non-oxide ceramic materials as an area of intense investigation and development within the ceramic materials community.
Historic compounds such as SiC, B4C and Si3N4 have more recently been joined by a wide range of carbide, nitride, and boride compounds, as well as mixed compounds such as the MAX phases (e.g., Ti3SiC2) in these investigations.
Product opportunities ranging from high-temperature electronics, improved personnel and vehicle armor, improved wear-resistant materials, and extreme environment tolerant materials all drive these efforts.
