Lifetime X2 : this is the expectation of 2.5D in heat treatment processes with aggressive and liquid media in comparison to 2D Carbon/Carbon composites
- High density,
- Lowest reactivity (among all graphite materials) to oxidizing gases and chemical substances due to the pyrocarbon matrix (double higher lifetime)
- Lower absorption of oil,
- Low micro-porosity.
- High resistance to delamination and mechanical shocks due the 3-D direction reinforcement.
- High breakage resistance, especially when no accurate manipulation occurs in charging/discharging the vacuum furnace
- Size up to 2.1 m in diameter, standard thickness up to 50 mm, up to 80 mm is possible.
