EvoCera is a totally innovative material combining the properties of the latest high-performance ceramic with the ductility of steel. Parts from EvoCera can be designed and manufactured based on the finite element method (FEM). This was only typical for steel materials up until now.
Construction elements made of EvoCera retain their uniquely high strength and dimensional stability even under continuous cyclic loads. They are therefore also suitable for critical areas of applications thanks to their innovative ductile properties. This enables the design of safety-relevant components in ceramic quality for the first time.
|Flexibility and plastic ductility|
|Non-magnetisable and electrically insulating qualities|
|Outstanding strength and dimensional stability|
|Calculation and design in accordance with the FEM|
|High abrasion, corrosion and temperature resistance|
|Significantly lower strength distribution|
THE CERAMIC ALTERNATIVE: FOR SPECIAL APPLICATIONS.
While conventional ceramic materials can break in the event of overloading, EvoCera is predictably ductile in accordance with the FEM calculation. This innovative plastic behaviour based on elastic elongation gives EvoCera an important reserve for safety-relevant components.
In addition, analyses show that components made of EvoCera have a significantly lower material strength variation (Weibull modulus > 50) than conventional industrial ceramic, such as zirconium oxide (ZrO₂).
Flexural strength σe
|Flexural strength σm||MPa||600||500|
|Plastic deformation ε||%||0,8||/|
A: Spread of values: EvoCera shows a significant lower spread of strength than industrial ceramic (ZrO2).
B: The slight curve shows a plastic behaviour due to the transformation controlled failure behaviour (contrary to industrial ceramic).
AS STRONG AS CERAMIC. AS RELIABLE AS STEEL.
The plasticity and strength of EvoCera allow the simulation and design of components in accordance with the FEM, which was only possible up until now with other materials, such as steel or special plastics.
This means: when designing components and parts, you can now take advantage of the unique advantages of industrial high-performance ceramic with EvoCera, even in safetycritical areas of application.
