The basic material is pressureless sintered silicon carbide SSiC for the container wall. A specially designed layer at the inner surface protects the SSiC against corrosive attacks from inside/ and reduces diffusion additionally.
The composition of the SSiC for the wall is tailored to the specific application.
In the case of fuel encapsulation the SICANA@-type is used e.g..
