Microwave nanotechnology of metal-ceramic materials synthesis

ImageAmong the most prospective technologies of synthesis (sintering) of ceramic and metal-ceramic materials a special place occupy microwave (MW) methods. Recently the increasing attention of experts is attracted by not thermal mechanisms of mass transport and activation of the solid-state physical and chemical reactions observed in strong electromagnetic fields.

The MRTI experts for a number of years carried out regular investigations in the given direction and proved that it is possible to achieve essentially new scientific and practical results. Now we have a possibility of creation of unique not having analogues in the world basic nanotechnology of synthesis of matrix composite ceramic and metal-ceramic functional and construction materials. We speak about essentially new MW method of new materials synthesis, not having anything in common with "usual" ceramics sintering in MW furnaces.

  Image      Possible scopes of technology:

Motor industry, for example, the production of heavy loaded parts of piston group (on the basis of the metal-ceramic complexes containing silicon nitride, zirconium and yttrium oxides, etc.) and an exhaust system of internal combustion engines.

The space equipment (for example, a heat-shielding covering of such space devices, as "Buran" or "Shuttle").

Aircraft - facing of engines air inlets and edges of bearing planes, shovels of turbines, etc. with composite metal-ceramic materials (including radio absorbing ceramics).

Medicine (prosthetics), including orthopedic dentistry. The technology allows to create a new class of cheap materials for prosthetics with high operational properties.Other technologies of materials, including applied in the gas-petroleum industries (the chisel tool), machine-tool  industries, electronics, etc.

As a result of the project performance under choice of the Customer technology of MW synthesis of new metal-ceramic "sandwich"-type materials, prospective ceramic matrix-type composite materials, gradient constructional and functional composite materials will be developed.
