While conventional ceramic materials can break in the event of overloading, EvoCera is predictably ductile and malleable in accordance with the FEM calculation. This innovative plastic behaviour based on elastic elongation gives EvoCera an important reserve for safety-relevant components.
In addition, analyses show that components made from EvoCera have a significantly lower material strength distribution (Weibull modulus > 50) than conventional industrial ceramic, such as zirconium oxide (ZrO₂).
A: Scattering of measurements: EvoCera displays significantly lower scattering in terms of strength than conventional industrial ceramic (ZrO₂).
B: The slight flexure shows a slightly plastic behaviour due to the transformation-controlled failure behaviour (in contrast to conventional industrial ceramic).
The plasticity and strength of EvoCera allow the simulation and design of components in accordance with the FEM, which was only possible up until now with other materials, such as steel or special plastics.
This means: when designing components and parts with EvoCera you can now take advantage of the unique advantages of industrial high-performance ceramic with EvoCera, even in safety-critical areas of application.
