WideGap Applications

The capabilities of WideGap were demonstrated in a NASA SBIR where the joining of graphite-based heating crucibles and the bonding of refractory composite (C:C and/or C:SiC) components used in government systems were successfully accomplished.

Other Significant Accomplishments Listed in This NASA SBIR:

Successfully demonstrated the joining of graphite to molybdenum and other refractory metals

Joined C:C to C:C and to refractory metals for possible use in rocket engines or processing furnaces

Developed a range of WideGap braze alloy compositions for service temperatures from 850 to 14500C

Demonstrated that WideGap braze preforms can economically join dissimilar materials for high temperature service
