BOOSTEC® SiC: SINTERED SILICONE CARBIDE FOR OPTICAL INSTRUMENT AND INDUSTRIAL EQUIPMENT

Boostec is a Mersen Group unit specializing in the development of innovative products in sintered silicon carbide.

A BROAD SPECTRUM OF APPLICATIONS:

Optical and scientific instrumentation: space or ground optics, stable structures, large scientific instruments, etc.
Using Boostec® technology, whole instruments can be made in SiC: structure and detector supports as well as the mirrors themselves.

The optical face of the mirrors can receive a SiC CVD coating to produce a completely non-porous surface, for a flawless polishable finish.

Chemical and pharma-chemical apparatus: continuous-flow reactors, heat exchangers, etc.
SiC continuous-flow reactors, for process intensification, are developed in partnership with Corning SAS. They cut down the number of production stages and improve the process's chemical reactions.

Mechanical applications: mechanical seals, bearings, thrust bearings, etc.

High speed mirrors for industrial laser systems.
Mersen OptoSiC high speed mirrors enable a game-change in the laser scanner industry through the physical characteristics, performance and cost benefits of SiC material.

It brings together two cutting-edge technologies: Boostec® SiC material combined with optoSiC® unique know-how of optical laser scanner techniques and component technologies.

Equipment for the semiconductor industry.
For some applications, the silicon carbide can receive a CVD (chemical vapor deposition) coating to give a completely non-porous high-purity SiC surface.

Boostec is also involved in several cooperative projects, such as Sicsol, an innovative alternative energy project on concentrated solar power.

Prior to the actual ceramic manufacturing process, Boostec also advises and assists customers in the design of silicon carbide parts.

AN ADVANCED CERAMIC WITH MANY KEY ADVANTAGES

  • high purity composition, with no secondary phase
  • isotropic physical properties
  • low density
  • very high mechanical strength and rigidity (420 GPa)
  • insensitivity to mechanical fatigue
  • high thermal conductivity (180 W/m/K)
  • low expansion coefficient
  • exceptional resistance to corrosive and abrasive environments.

Mersen has held an 85% stake of Boostec since 2010, and Boostec's main partner, Airbus Defence and Space (ex-Astrium), holds 15%.
