Ceralink Expands Materials Testing Facility

Ceralink Inc., a service provider in advanced ceramic materials, announced the completion of a major expansion in its Materials Testing Center located in eastern Ohio. The $1M investment increases capacity by 40 percent. Customers in aerospace require rigorous testing of ceramic matrix composites (CMCs) to qualify these game changing materials for use in the hot zone of engines. CMCs replace superalloys, offering drastic weight reduction and increased fuel efficiency. Ceralink says it has become a premier testing center, offering high cycle fatigue at temperatures up to 2550 F (1400 C) to simulate vibrations experienced during flight. Ceralink has 15 years of experience in advanced ceramics, which the company feels translates to a competitive advantage in running the sensitive tests required.
