How WideGap™ Works

WideGap™ technology involves a proprietary production facility and know how (developed over 10 years) for producing flexible mats with binders. In addition, there is significant technical expertise built into the preforms for the joints’ materials/metallurgical interactions (powders in preforms are scientifically selected and engineered e.g. specially sized, special surface conditions, special densities, sometimes made as a composite). This ability to make mats and slurries that hold together and can be formed to shape while maintaining integrity during vacuum furnace firing is essential to the WideGap™ process.

This unique capability forms the underpinning of our know-how! The binders must hold the product together but vaporize at the right time during furnace firing and pass out of the furnace without causing contamination or buildup.
