Applications of Trex CVC™ Silicon Carbide Products

Trex's CVC SiC™ products, fabricated utilizing its patented CVC™ technology, are rapidly gaining acceptance in a number of high value added applications within the DoD and industry.

  • CVC™ Semiconductor wafer processing equipment, especially etch where the material has demonstrated superior etch resistance
  • Mirrors and optics (up to 1.5 meter)
  • Nuclear fuel rod cladding
  • Components for high temperature (up to 3600°F) applications/environments. Trex CVC SiC™ outperforms other silicon carbides by more than 1000°F.
  • Ballistic applications
  • CVC™ wafer processing components

Trex Advanced Materials: The Result

CVD SiC™ scale bar = 15 mm Trex CVC SiC™ scale bar = 15 mm

Trex Proprietary CVC SiC™ is Free of Intrinsic Stress Resulting In:

  • Uniform microstructure with uniform thermal performance across all axes
  • Faster growth rate (about 5x CVD)
  • High yields (nearly 100%)
  • Ability to deposit complex shapes and structures
  • Large size and thick parts
