About Us

Take me directly to Range of services

The Fraunhofer-Center for High Temperature Materials and Design HTL in Bayreuth and the Fraunhofer-Center for Textile Fiber Ceramics TFK in Münchberg are part of the Fraunhofer-Institute for Silicate Research ISC in Würzburg.

The Fraunhofer-Centers HTL and TFK focus on projects and services for developing ceramic fiber composites covering all process steps from the fiber to the finished CMC-parts. This continuous process chain is supposed to address national and international companies from all sectors, from material production to material application.

The Fraunhofer Center HTL develops customized ceramic fibers. This includes the chemical synthesis of precursors, the spinning of fibers as well as all subsequent processing steps (pyrolysis, coating).

The Fraunhofer HTL sets another focus on energy efficiency in high temperature processes. Novel ceramic materials are designed with improved heat resistance. Also, heat treatment procedures are optimized with the help of newly developed measuring and simulation methods in order to significantly increase the energy efficiency and so, in turn, reduce CO2 emissions in industrial production processes or power generation.  

The Fraunhofer TFK characterizes and tests ceramic fibers such as SiC and Al2O3 or carbon, glass and basalt for very different purposes. Within the framework of R&D projects it is also possible to process ceramic fibers.

The TFK is working to develop cost-efficient processes to mass-produce inorganic fibers to specific 2D and 3D structures in order to tab their potential for use in light-weight construction or the automotive and aerospace industries. Less weight enables resource-friendly and more efficient solutions. What’s more, such fiber structures also offer high damage tolerance and temperature resistance.
