Agreement to develop ceramic composites

Materials testing company Lucideon and the National Composites Centre (NCC) in the UK have signed a Memorandum of Understanding to design, test and develop oxide and non-oxide ceramic composite materials.

Plans are for Lucideon to analyze and evaluate the material developed by the NCC and make it ready for industrial production.

“Due to global challenges such as energy security and Net Zero, there is an increasing need for new, affordable technologies that will endure longer durations in increasingly harsh environments,” said Tim Abbott, business manager at Lucideon. “To enable this, novel materials and manufacturing processes are required to deliver a step-change in technology performance and survivability.”
