Fraunhofer IKTS in the Technical Textiles Alliance

Fraunhofer Institute for Ceramic Technologies and Systems IKTS

Fraunhofer IKTS covers the field of advanced ceramics from basic preliminary research through to the entire range of application. Based on a comprehensive material knowledge in ceramic high-performance materials, the developments extend over the entire value chain up to the prototype production. The IKTS is equally aligned to the two technology platforms structural and functional ceramics.

Competences in the Alliance

  • Development and fabrication of ceramic matric composites
  • New processes for fabrication of CMC components
  • Functionalization of textile structures
  • Non-destructive characterization of structures and components
