HENDERSON, Nev. – Carbon SiC announced that it has been awarded a direct to phase two contract with the Air Force Research Labs, a division of the Air Force.
Carbon SiC will be developing existing composite technology to support hypersonic applications in extreme environmental temperatures operating above 2,700 C.
The Nevada-based company has developed an affordable and fast production scalable ultra-high temperature composite material, which can be used in several industry applications. The company’s mission is leveraging advanced composites to create new operational management solutions.
Since working the the Army’s TARDEC / GVSC (Ground Vehicle System Center) within the past five years, Carbon SiC has developed an ultra-high temperature carbon ceramic brake rotor designed to be competitively priced around iron disc brakes, making it much more affordable to acquire (patented and patent pending applications).
Carbon ceramic brake discs have many benefits being one-third the weight of steel while assisting in carrying more freight, lasting four-times longer, and reducing fuel consumption which has a significant impact io fleets.
