SiC TECHNOLOGICAL BASE
- SiC is synthesized as a mass product for abrasives, refractory and high performance ceramics already.
- The base materials SiO2 (sand) and C (carbon, coke, …) are abundantly available on earth compared to metals. Electrical energy is necessary for the high temperature synthesis process.
- The manufacturing of SiC components, also containers, is feasible and industrial practice today.
- With the laser bonding technology CERALINK@ and the native bonding technology for SSiC the key technologies for encapsulation are readily available.
… the prerequisites for encapsulation in SiC are given!
