ArCarb-UHT

Ultra-High Temperature Stable

ArCarb-UHT focuses on thermally stable components. Along with ultra-high temperature resistance, ArCarb-UHT also offers tailored thermal conductivity based on the system requirements. ArCarb-UHT components enhance the system by pushing the thermal boundaries and achieving the optimum efficiency. ArCarb is 3 times lighter than superalloys and can withstand temperatures higher than superalloys (non-oxidising environment). Thus, making it an attractive prospect in ultra-high temperature domain.
